Over 300 Coats Donated by Joliet High School Students

BILLINGS, Mont. -

Joliet High School students came together and donated more than 300 coats to a couple of shelters, here in Billings.

"Not In Our School," an anti-bullying program, held a coat drive to donate to the Montana Rescue Missions Men's, Women's and Children's shelters. Student, Kaylee Rowlison, said they wanted to donate to the Mission and get a better understanding of how those in need experienced day-to-day life. Rowlison also said they were overwhelmed by the amount of coats they received from the community.

Student, Logen Myeland said, "We did it[coat drive] for a couple weeks and it just surprised me how all the people in the community joined in and pitched in their coats that they didn't wear, just to help out the people in need."

"A lot of kids are bullied even from when they are little to when they are adults and just to be apart of an organization that could help put a stop to that is really beneficial for everyone," said Rowlison.

 Myeland said the public really needs to stick up for people being bullied.
