The boys on the Staples High School soccer team collected coats for the Mercy Learning Center of Bridgeport at Friday's boys basketball game played at home against Bassick High School of Bridgeport. Players Max Hoberman, Kyle Hoberman and Taylor McNair collected the coats.
Dr. Gerald Kuroghlian, a former English teacher at Staples who had the boys as students, helped the teens develop the idea to collect the coats, which will be distributed to women and children. "They were happy to help,'' Staples soccer coach Dan Woog said. "It was a success."
