On Nov. 13, volunteers from the Northwest Suburban Council of PTA/PTSA selected warm clothing from the NWSC Coat Closet to be donated to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

Ten large lawn leaf bags of overstock coats and cold weather accessories were selected by Susan Rogers, NWSC health and safety chair; Jen Towsey, Central Road PTA president; and Kelly Hill, also from Central Road. The items were then donated to RIM Logistics, a transportation company in Roselle that conducted a warm clothing drive at its warehouse. RIM Logistics delivered the collected items to victims of Hurricane Sandy over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The NWSC provides support and resources to the local PTA and PTSA units of all District 15 schools. It established the Coat Closet so that all District 15 children would have the opportunity to be properly clothed in the winter months. The Coat Closet is at Gray M. Sanborn School, 101 N. Oak St., Palatine. Coats, hats, gloves and mittens, snow pants, scarves and boots, ranging in size from toddler to adult, are available.

Those needing clothing should contact any District 15 school office.
