GRANGER — Highland Middle School and Highland High School DARE Role Models and SADD members recently conducted a Coats for Kids drive, netting more than 300 coats collected district-wide.

Highland students have been participating in the coat drive for the past seven years. New and gently used coats were accepted through Dec. 6 at all Highland school buildings and will be distributed to those in need in the Highland district community.

Howard Hanna in Wadsworth coordinates this effort each year and covers the cost of dry cleaning the coats.
