Tompkins High School PTSA, Tays Junior High PTSA, and Shafer Elementary PTA are teaming up and rounding up “new” or “nearly new” coats for students who lost their homes in Harvey.

Each coat donated will be matched to a student in need. They will be collecting all next week in various sizes for elementary age students.
