Kate Cwenar, a sophomore at Pine-Richland High School, decided to hold another neighborhood coat drive. The idea came to her two summers ago as she was thinking of a way to give back to her community. It went so well that she decided to do another one this year.

She designed a flyer and distributed it throughout her neighborhood asking the community to donate gently worn coats of all types and sizes so that they could be handed out to people in need. Kate launched her coat drive on Oct. 1 and collected more than 100 coats.

“I have always wanted to do something for my community. I have always wanted to give back and I enjoy volunteering. It just makes me feel really good,” Kate said.

The coats have been given to North Hills Community Outreach.
