The Weatherford Police Department and Weatherford Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association will kick off the Annual Heater Drive, which benefits Parker County senior citizens, Saturday at Lowe’s Home Improvement, located at 118 Interstate 20 East, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
An addition to the regular events will be a Haircuts for Heaters Drive, sponsored by Weatherford High School’s cosmetology department. Cosmetology staff and students will be on site, offering haircuts for heaters, with all of the donations benefitting the heater drive.
