CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — It’s that time of year again for Puritan Cleaners coats for kids.

The first school drive of this year was at Swift Creek Elementary School. Swift Creek has challenged fellow elementary school Woolridge to see who can collect the most coats, and it looks like Woolridge Elementary has their work cut out for them. Students at Swift Creek collected nearly 600 kids coats today. The Puritan Cleaners team was on site to collect the Coats and to praise the students for giving back to the community.
