WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (NOVEMBER 12, 2020) — Thanks to a donation made by the district's insurance firm, a group of students will receive a free coat to wear this winter.

Dereck Malzi, the area's assistant vice president for Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., stopped by the District Service Center this morning to present 10 coats that will be given to five female and five male students at the high school.

The donation is a part of the company's annual Coats 4 Kids Drive.

In addition to the coats, the insurance firm also is raising funds from its employee base to put together holiday gift packages for a selection of students at Stevens Primary School. The gift packages will include items, such clothing, shoes, and small toys and games.
