Eagle Optimists complete Coats for Kids drive

The Optimist Club of Eagle, Idaho completed its annual Coats for Kids drive by donating over 150 coats to the Landing Community Center. The drive was coordinated by Eagle Optimist Club member Brian Doerty. Coats were collected from donation barrels located at businesses and schools around Eagle and will be used to keep local children warm during the cold winter days ahead.  

Children or their parents may stop by the Landing at 175 E. Mission Street to choose a coat. There are also a number of hoodies and sweatshirts that are available. All are being provided at no charge. 

Along with the children, in the picture are Clint Koefoed with the Landing Community Center; Lindsey Pretty Weasel, Washington Trust Bank; and Mark Sjobeck, Custom Care Cleaners. Custom Care Cleaners donated cleaning for all apparel.  All are members of the Eagle Optimist Club.
