Coats for Kids Shares the Warmth

Sheriff Chris Degase and Deputy Vernon Johnson, above center, picked up 150 coats from Wal-Mart on Wednesday, Oct. 17.  The coats are being distributed this year to school children and youths in the Douglas County area who need a warm jacket.  The purchase was made possible by funds provided through the Coats for Kids fundraiser, and a recent donation from the Lions Club.  Wal-Mart employees shown above helped with the project.
