Because of the winter season, Greeley West freshman leadership class started a blanket and jacket drive for those in extra need of warmth in the cold temperatures. All blankets are going to the Greeley Sheriff Department to be distributed to victims and their families at the scenes where families spend prolonged periods in the cold. The jacket drive proceeds are going to Migrant Education program, led by Ms. Annette Quintana.

 

Donations for the blanket drive were taken until Friday, November 30th in the form of cash or change.

 

“Our goal is only 30 blankets or so, but if we raise just five dollars from each class, we will be well beyond that mark,” said freshman blanket drive facilitator, Stephani Menbreno. “The more the better, we have no real goal.”

 

The students however, are hoping for old, clean jackets as donation. Donations for the jacket drive are running until Friday, December 7th. By the deadline, the freshman will, along with help from Leadership teacher Ms. Kory Zulauf, begin sending all donated jackets to The Salvation Army where they will be distributed.

 

Zulauf is hoping that the students develop applied leadership skills, and that the students become more aware of the world around them. Through project work, and having freshmen do an entire community service project by themselves, they are much more involved, and gain a sense of accomplishment.
