The Historic Wright Dunbar Business District is hosting a coat drive for students at Edison Elementary. Elizabeth Swanson, Family Resource Coordinator there, stated there was a great need for winter coats. Last year they received 50 new coats and they were given to children that came to school without a coat. Those coats were gone quickly. Edison Elementary is a Pre-K through 6th grade with 383 students. Sizes range from 4T-to Medium Adult.
There are seven drop off locations in Wright Dunbar:
Amos Jefferies State Farm,
W. Social Tap & Table,
The Entrepreneurs Shoppe
Coats for Edison will run until November 17th.
