The Sweetwater County Child Developmental Center PTO recently sponsored a winter clothing drive to collect hats, gloves, coats, and boots to provide to children in need.

"We worked throughout the end of November and first part of December to gather what we could for donations, both monetary and actual winter clothing," Jessica Anson with the PTO explained. "With the help of generous donations from amazing local businesses, we were able to purchase hats and mittens for over 300 children in Sweetwater County."

Businesses that helped out include Quickenden Chiropractic Clinic, Boars Pit Food Truck, Krone Diesel, Deja Brew, and Crowheart Energy.

The PTO began dispersing donations to students in need at the end of December.

The group is still taking requests for winter clothing, which they are somewhat limited on currently, according to Anson. Families may email and the group will do their best to fill those requests.

The PTO is also continuing to collect donations of new or gently used winter clothing, especially clothing for older kids and adults to fill the continuing requests.

"We want to help keep as many kiddos warm as possible this winter," Anson said.
