Scott County Kids in Tenessee are in ugent need to have good people like you to help them stay warm. This year the County has been at the highest unemployment rate in the state of Tn. I work at the local Hospital and the employees are working very hard to raise the money needed to purchase coats for the needy school children, each year the 5 schools we have in this rural area send a list of those children in need of a coat, in turn the hospital employees have fund raisers, silent auctions, donations etc.. to raise the money to purchase the coats necessary, last year we had over 500 coats purchased and distributed. This year we anticipate an even larger number of needy children due to our economic state as our manufacturers have left leaving many unemeployed and unable to purchase a coat for their child. At this point we have around 200 coats needed this not including totals from 2 other "big" schools within the county. We have attempted and exhausted all possible resources within our county such as walmart in trying to get the coats at a lower cost which was totally ineffective therefore WE NEED YOU TO HELP ! if at all possible in order to provide all the coats needed for our community.
