Employees of F&M Trust held a winter coat drive in November during which money was collected to purchase 80 coats for students at Thaddeus Stevens Elementary School.

“So many expenses arise for our students’ families this time of year, especially with the rising costs of everything from food to household heat. These coats take a financial burden off those needing help, while offering our kids a source of warmth and comfort during the cold winter months,” Strayer said.

About 350 students attend the school on Hollywell Avenue in the southwestern end of the Borough of Chambersburg.

“We can’t put into words how much we appreciate the generosity and support of F&M Trust,” Strayer said. “This contribution truly captures the heartwarming essence of the holiday season.”
