Each year, the community at Diamond hosts a Winter Coat Drive. In 2014 one of our beloved teachers, Mrs. Andrea Virga, passed away after a battle with breast cancer. In her life outside of Diamond, Mrs. Virga was very involved in helping others – particularly on a local level and specifically the homeless and needy. To honor Mrs. Virga’s life, the Diamond PTA named our Winter Coat Drive for Andrea Virga. She will live on through our service to others.

This year the drive is for the entire month of October. Please send students with items that are NEW or Gently Used (and clean!) such as coats, jackets, scarves, gloves, and hats. Items can be dropped off in the main lobby of the school in the bins under the PTA bulletin board (next to the APR).

Andrea’s husband, Jamie Virga, brought coats to donate. 2017
