Members of the TEAM SWODA Annual Coat Drive would like to thank everyone who has donated new and gently-worn jackets and coats so far this year. However, they are still needing lots more youth-sized coats. Donations are being accepted throughout the area including: ALTUS – Altus City Hall, 609 S Main or Jackson County Courthouse, 101 N Main; HOLLIS – Harmon County Courthouse, 114 E Hollis; and MANGUM – Mangum City Hall, 201 N Oklahoma or Greer County Courthouse, Courthouse Square.
South Western Oklahoma Development Authority (SWODA) distributes the coats as needed to infants, children, teens and adults through various area organizations and schools.
If you need further information, please call Jackie Gardner or Robin Braddock at (580) 562-4882. The SWODA region includes the eight counties of Beckham, Custer, Greer, Harmon, Jackson, Kiowa, Roger Mills and Washita.
