Lamar High School DECA Program warming communities…one coat at a time.

(Lamar, Colorado, October 6, 2016) – Nearly 50 million Americans are currently living in poverty.  For these families and individuals, a warm coat is a budget extra they simply cannot afford. Lamar High School’s DECA program invite(s) area residents to make a difference in your neighbor’s lives by donating coats during our annual coat drive!

Lamar High School’s DECA Program is working with local businesses to collect clean, gently used warm coats, hats, and gloves to support the coat drive program, from now until November 7th. Donations can be made at Safeway, Big R, the Community Building, Brew Unto Others, and Community State Bank. The process is simple: you drop off your extra winter gear, preferably for children, and Lamar High School’s DECA program will take care of the rest. All donated coats will be dry cleaned and given to local children and adults in need.

Our goal is to collect as many coats during our annual coat drive as possible!

If you would like more information, know someone in need, or would like to help distribute coats, please contact Jenna Randle at (719) 336-3488 or at
