‘Coats for Kids’ begins

November 23, 2012

The seasonal barrels are back out.

They are not the orange barrels signifying the construction season, but the Coats for Kids barrels set out by the Wapakoneta High School Octagon Club to benefit the needy.

“The barrels are out and they have been out since Saturday and they will be out until Dec. 2,” Octagon co-adviser Dawn Stinebaugh said. “We will have the coats cleaned and then we will give them to Mercy Unlimited.”

The barrels are out at Family Video, Wal-Mart, Community Markets, the Wapakoneta Family YMCA and Wapakoneta High School.

Stinebaugh is serving as co-adviser with Liz Schoonover.

Stinebaugh said the Octagon Club is comprised of approximately 30 students. They meet the first and third Friday of the month at the high school. Boys and girls, who are attend classes at the high school, are eligible and encouraged to join.

Stinebaugh said the group is for eighth-graders through high school seniors. This is the first year eighth-graders can  participate.

“We still do a service project each year and we are helping out by adopting a highway and adopting a family during the holidays,” Stinebaugh said.

Stinebaugh and Schoonover took over for Linda and Terry Blosser.
