Students at Lindale’s Velma Penny Elementary School are working hard to help Smith County children in need bundle up and stay warm this winter.
Velma Penny students are participating in the KLTV Classroom Challenge to help PATH (People Attempting to Help) collect gently-used or new winter coats for children in need. Students at the campus have already collected 90 coats.
VPE Counselor Leslie Dowdle is helping to lead the coat drive at the campus.
“The students are learning to become servant leaders in their community and be able to recognize the need to have a giving heart towards others that are less fortunate,” said Dowdle.
