West Ridge Elementary collecting warm hats, scarves & gloves


West Ridge Elementary PTO is accepting donations of mittens, gloves, scarves and winter hats through Dec. 23 for their Warm Giving Tree project.

This project has been going on through the month of December. Warm, winter items will be donated to West Ridge students and families in need first and then donations are going to local churches. This is the first year for this program. It was put in place this month after the West Ridge PTO decided to do a community service project.

Pictured is Melissa O'Leary with West Ridge PTO Hospitality and her children Olivia O'Leary in fourth grade, and Killian O'Leary in first grade, going through the donations in front of the Giving Tree. "The community service project has gone great this month," said Melissa O'Leary. "The school has received a lot of donations."
