Coat Drive

The B. Michael Caudill Youth Service Center would like to thank all parents and students who donated articles of outwear during our coat drive! It was a huge success and over 2,000 articles of clothing were graciously donated.

The Contenders were the winners with the most articles donated.

Dress Warmly

It seems like the teenage years are the hardest years to get kids to wear a coat. When the temperatures are in the single digits and low teens, layers are a must especially if they will spend a good amount of time waiting for rides and for their bus. Dress warmly in layered clothing, including a hat, a scarf or knit mask to cover your face and mouth, sleeves that are snug at the wrist, mittens, a water-resistant coat and water-resistant boots.

Warnings signs for frostbite, or an injury to the body caused by freezing, include redness or pain in any skin area, white or grayish-yellow skin, skin that feels unusually firm or waxy and numbness. Seek medical attention immediately if you suspect frostbite. . Avoid exertion, as cold weather puts an extra strain on the heart. People with heart disease or high blood pressure should follow their doctor's advice about shoveling snow or performing other activities in the snow.
