A generous donation from The Figgie Foundation and Clark-Reliance Corporation will make this winter much warmer for the several hundred children who attend Harrison Elementary School in Lakewood.
The school coat distribution in early November was sponsored by The Figgie Foundation and Clark-Reliance Corporation. Local employees of Altar’d State and iHeartMedia Cleveland, along with Coats for Kids representatives, were at the school for a two-day coat distribution that resulted in every student at the school receiving a brand new, warm winter coat.
Coats for Kids worked with The Figgie Foundation and Clark-Reliance to identify a school in Lakewood where the majority of children are economically disadvantaged. The companies chose Lakewood to honor the Figgie family legacy. The late Matthew Figgie often reminisced about his childhood in Lakewood and remembered his dear parents, both of whom were Lakewood High School alumni.
