Saeger Provides New Coats and Winter Gear for Local Families in Need

Saeger Middle School recently held their annual Spartan Winter Warm-Up, collecting new and gently used coats, gloves, hats, and scarves. Saeger’s Spartan Service Club has been organizing the drive for the past seven years to benefit families in our community who need a little extra warmth during the holiday season.

This year, the Club partnered with Schnucks-Cottleville, Cottleville City Hall, and Warren Elementary to collect donations. Thanks to the generosity of our community, they collected over 130 coats, and approximately 80 hats, scarves, and pairs of gloves.

Parent organizer, Yolanda Curry, says watching the donations come in from the community was exciting.  "The community's support for the Spartan Winter Warm-Up is always fantastic and this year was no exception,” says Curry. “This time of the year there are families, for various reasons, that just need a little help.  When families come in and are able to find what they need for free -- they are always so grateful and relieved."

On Dec. 12, families in our community had the opportunity to shop for needed winter gear. This year’s Spartan Winter Warm-Up served 14 families, a total of 47 children and adults.

While the Spartan Service Club works to keep families warm each winter, they work year-round facilitating positive public service efforts to make the world a better place, one project at a time.
