Local firefighters provide new coats to Burnsville -Eagan- Savage District students 2018

November 12, 2018 Savage Pacer reports: Local firefighters handed out hundreds of new coats to elementary students in the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage District last month, according to a news release.

It's the second consecutive year that students were given coats through a partnership with Operation Warm — a national nonprofit that manufactures brand-new coats for kids in need. Coats were purchased through donations from individuals, groups and local corporations.

Members of the Burnsville Professional Fighters Local 2910 and 4481 presented 360 coats to all students who wanted them in at Vista View Elementary School in Burnsville.

“We hope students realize there are many people in the community who think they are very special and want to make sure they stay warm all winter long,” said Capt. James Glover with the Burnsville Fire Department.

Last year, firefighters from Burnsville provided nearly 400 new coats to students at Sky Oaks Elementary in Burnsville.

They encouraged firefighters in Eagan to join the effort and provide new coats to students this year, Glover said. On Oct. 26, 150 coats were given to students in preschool, kindergarten and first grade at Rahn Elementary School in Eagan.

He thanked donors and also praised school social workers Katie Keller at Rahn and Kelly Freeburg at Vista View for coordinating distribution day.

At both events, firefighters assisted students in selecting brightly-colored warm coats that fit them just right. Then they helped students write their names in the coats with permanent marker.

“As our Minnesota winter approaches, we greatly appreciate local firefighters providing coats to our students to keep them warm and to show support for their success in school,” Superintendent Cindy Amoroso said in a statement. “This is truly what we call Community Strong.”
