METAIRIE, La.– St. Catherine of Siena School students are helping with WGNO’s annual “Coats for Kids” drive.

It’ll warm your heart to see what the kids at St. Catherine of Siena School in Metairie are doing to share warmth with other kids. These students are donating gently used or new coats for kids in need.

Katie Neman, Parent and Co-Chair of SCS Cares Committee said, “I think it helps show the students that even small things they can do like going through their house and finding coats that they don’t need anymore can make a big difference in someone else’s life that might not be as fortunate as they are.”

Blaze Courier showed up at the school to pick up all the donated coats.

“That’s the biggest load I’ve seen. Normally, I get that kind of load from three or four. places. I think it is a great thing that they do this every year. With everything that everyone’s going through, people need Christmas now, Edgar Jackson with Blaze Courier said.

These student’s help is giving everyone a warm and cozy feeling knowing that they are helping give the gift of warmth this winter.
