Students Launch Huge Project Hoping to Provide Hundreds of Warm Winter Coats to Those in Need During Pandemic

Students and staff stand with donated coatsSome Herriman High School business and marketing, (DECA and FBLA) students are hoping to use the skills they are learning in the classroom to fill a huge need right now – providing warm winter coats for students and families who have fallen on hard times during the pandemic.

What started out as a small coat drive for a local homeless shelter has turned into a much larger effort to provide winter coats for those in need in the communities of Riverton, West Jordan, South Jordan, Herriman, Copperton, and Bluffdale. The coat drive is called “No Cold Kids” and students have even enlisted help from Scheels. The retailer will match every donation to the coat cause. So far, the students have collected about 200 new and gently used coats. However, their goal is to collect at least 800 coats, hoping to bring at least some relief to students and families struggling during difficult times brought on by COVID-19.

Thanks to these amazing Herriman High students for caring about our communities
