Manteo Middle School students help Clothes for Kids
Manteo Middle School National Junior Honor Society collected ninety-three coats to help Clothes for Kids, a program inspired by Food for Thought that began this winter. With help from Dare Challenge, the organization held events and provided over eighty elementary students across Dare County with free coats, winter tops, pants and pajamas.
