Interact Club’s annual coat drive was held on November 25 and 26. The donation of coats to those unable to buy their own has been at Eagan High School for five years, first suggested by club member Brenna Steichen.

The coats have gone to many places in the past. The ISD 196 Cultural Family Program and Mission Outpost at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville were the recipients this year.

Mission Outpost has a food shelf and a clothing closet. The idea was for beneficiaries to take the coats while they got their food.

Interact Club set a goal of 400 coats donated this year. They ended up with 407. If any students missed the deadline, coats were meant to be donated can go to Mr. Wirsbinski in room 236, and would be greatly appreciated.

“I wonder every year if Interact Club should do the coat drive again,” Mr. Wirsbinski, the Interact faculty adviser, said. “But the club board claims even if only 100 coats are donated, it’s still 100 coats to a good cause.”
