Today Is Clothing Drive Day

“I love it when a plan comes together.” This is not just the line Hannibal used to say at the end of the 80’s adventure show, The A-Team.  It’s also how I feel today.   After months of planning, promotion, and hard work, the clothing drive that my daughter Jade Hasseman helps to organize will happen.  Last year, Jade saw a need at her school and decided to start a clothing drive for kids who needed warm clothes.  It went incredibly well and this year they decided to do it again.  (You can read more about it here).   So today, (because it was too much for pick up trucks) a Box Truck full of new and gently used clothing will be heading to Coshocton High School for kids in need.  They will be able to take whatever they need…for free.  In addition, many generous people donated money so they could provide deodorant, shampoo, soap too.  Oh, and it’s worth a shout out to Coshocton Dentistry who is donated Toothbrushes and toothpaste as well!  The generosity of the Coshocton County community has been amazing. I am super proud of Jade (and my wife Amy) for helping to make this happen.  But Jade would tell you it’s a huge team effort.  There are tons of people that have donated, helped to sort and fold the clothing, and (hopefully) lots of people to help load up today.  Any effort like this cannot happen without a large group of people that roll up their sleeves.   It all started with a simple question.  What can I do to help? Make sure you never miss an update!  Today is a great day to sign up for our VIP newsletter here.
