Kindergartners made a visit today to the Giving Fence in McLean county.
Washington Elementary students brought items over today from their school to add to the collection of coats, hats, scarves and gloves for people in need.
The fence is a kind gesture one local woman decided to make three years ago.
According to the founder of the Giving Fence, Tahnee Lathrop, “The first year we had the shortest season. and we probably gave 400-500 coats away. last year was about 1,000. right now we’re at about 750.”
The fence is becoming more of a community project now, is how she put it. Tahnee believes that, “kids get it”.
