Also, they will learn about state grants and federal pell grants. A student-aid expert from PHEAA will be available to provide information and answer any questions that parents and students might have about the whole financial aid process. For Special Education students that plan on attending college or a technical training school, OVR (Office of Vocational Rehabilitation) will begin their presentation at 6:00 p.m.

The American Legion Gardner Warner Post 154 in Montrose, PA announced that it is assisting in the distribution of 100,000 new teen coats which have been donated by Aeropostale, Inc. The American Legion Post 154 received 500 coats, which were designed exclusively for this outreach program. More than 120 agencies were brought together by One Warm Coat to handle the distribution of the coats in all 50 States.
The Coats for the Community Program was started 4 years ago by Salene Herman, a member of the Post. The program started out donating coats, hats, gloves, scarves and blankets to families in need in local communities.
Coats for the Community asks for donations of slightly used, clean coats from individuals and from schools and churches in the county. The program has been getting donations of coats from Burlington Coat Factory the past 3 years. This year they have gotten donations from Old Navy along with the 500 coats from Aeropostale. In addition, over $1,000.00 worth of kids coats were purchased over the past 3 years.
So far this year, without the coats from Aeropostale, the Post donated over 1100 coats to individuals from 5 different distribution sites throughout Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties.
The next distribution of coats will be December 7, 8, 9, and 10 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the American Legion Post 154 on the South Montrose to Elk Lake road.
The Post accepts donations of slightly used, clean coats at the Post or you can drop them off at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Montrose. You can make monetary donations to the American Legion Post 154, RR #4, Box 223C, Montrose, PA 18801 and note on your check that it’s for the Coat Program. You can call the Post at 278-1649 for information on the Coats for the Community Program and for future distribution dates and sites.
