DECA delivers warmth through coat drive

Demopolis High School DECA launched their “DECA is Driven” Coat Drive Campaign during the month of November to help make this Christmas season warmer for children and families in Marengo County. 

Coats and monetary donations were collected from classes at Demopolis High School and U.S. Jones Elementary. The classes held a friendly competition to see who could win a wing party catered by Batter Up. Several local businesses also had donation jars to help the cause.

This year’s coat drive was a huge success with 303 coats, nine stuffed animal toys, and $225.82 in donations. Donations were delivered to Marengo County DHR.  The donated jackets and stuffed animals were generously cleaned and mended by the staff at Holiday Cleaners.
