The department will buy the coat and give it to the teacher for the student. The process is anonymous, and no one embarrasses the student, Chance said. The department also routinely gives hats and gloves for students when teachers request them, Chance said. Jingle Jog at Nights ‘N’ Lights in Ottumwa Park in November was one of the first Sparky Claus events of the season. Pizza Hut tip night Dec. 12 will provide money to buy children’s coats. Details about Sparky Claus events can be found on the Sparky Claus Facebook page. Public Transportation Thank you Ottumwa!
