be bringing caps, gloves and socks to children who need them for winter at the
local schools this week.
Chairman Bill Scudder said the schools - John
Mullan Elementary, Silver Hills Elementary, Sunnyside Elementary, Pinehurst
Elementary, Canyon Elementary, Silver Valley Christian Academy and Kellogg Head
Start - were contacted in mid-October for an estimated number of students who
would benefit from the warm clothing.
The Silver Valley Kiwanis Club then worked to raise funds, he continued, to
purchase the caps, gloves and socks.
While most of the items were bought from Lavigne Drug Group, homemade donations
were also accepted for the clothing drive.
