New Coat Drive

The Cathlamet Woman’s Club is proud to be this year’s sponsor for the New Coat Drive. This is designed for infants to those who are 17 years of age. The Star Program was started many years ago because many children during the Christmas season do not have adequate coats during the cold and rainy season. This is only for children who reside in Wahkiakum County. New coats and monetary donations are accepted at the Bank of the Pacific for the Star Program. Try to get the coats there before December 11. For more information contact NoraLee Knopp at (360) 431-5232.
