Every student at Penfield Montessori Academy gets a coat, thanks to MFD
MILWAUKEE — Officials with the Milwaukee Fire Department on Wednesday, Nov. 14 dropped off a big donation — coats for an entire school!
Every student at Penfield Montessori Academy got a coat as part of a program called “Operation Warm.”
Penfield is a public school for kids between the ages of 3 years old and 6 years old. About 90 percent of the students’ families live at or below the poverty line.
Along with the coats, firefighters gave a presentation to the students about fire safety.
It’s the second straight year the students at Penfield received coats through this program.
