Operation Cover-Up Coat Drive
The Upper Valley Career Center is teaming up with the Miami County Sheriff’s Office and Sunset Cleaners for the 28th Annual Operation Cover-Up Coat Drive.
The Electrical Trades program within the district is leading the effort and challenging each of the 24 career-focused programs at the school to collect as many gently-used coats as possible by the end of the school day, Wednesday, October 17. The program with the most coats collected will receive a pizza party as their reward. This friendly competition is for a great cause, as parents and guardians can visit the Miami County Fairgrounds Shop and Crop Building on Saturday, October 27 from 9:00 - 11:00 am and receive free coats for children.
To help the Career Center in this effort, please reach out to a UVCC student or simply deliver gently-used coats to the school’s front desk from 8:30 am - 3:15 pm, Monday - Friday through October 17. Donations can also be made directly to Sunset Cleaners through October 22.
Additional information is available by calling the school and asking for Electrical Trades, 937.778.1980, or contacting the Miami County Sheriff’s Office, 937.440.6085.
