Thirteen coats were distributed to Park Elementary students in Richmond, and approximately 125 coats were delivered to Bear River Early Head Start.Leftover coats were delivered to the Cache Community Food Pantry, the Cache Multicultural Center and the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church for further distribution to individuals and families in need.The Logan Police Department says it never ceases to amaze them the amount of need there is in their community, but also the overwhelming generosity that comes out to meet it.
