Clothes for Needy Children

Old Man Winter hit hard Monday evening, bringing high
winds and cold temperatures to Oklahoma. Tuesday morning
found folks looking for that warm coat to wear to work or shopping.
But, what if there was no warm coat hanging in the closet?
That is what many children in the Mangum School system faced
as they headed off to school.

Last year marked the 15th year for the Clothes for Needy Children
Fund. Over the past 15 years you have helped literally hundreds
of children in our schools get the warm clothing for our
brutal winter months.
