CISD Coat Drive

The Clothing Center is seeking new or gently used coats and jackets for CISD students in need. We recommend jackets in standardized dress colors: gray, light blue, royal blue, navy blue, gold, white or black, although any color is appreciated. The elementary campus that collects the most coats and jackets during the drive will receive a visit from Santa Claus in December. The deadline to turn in coats and jackets to any of the schools' front office is Nov. 10.
