Robert (Bob) L. Rice, Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney, announced the community stakeholders throughout Nodaway County that have agreed to collect coats for children and adults in need throughout the county.  

The community stakeholders that have agreed to help collect coats through Friday, November 8 are: Nodaway County Sheriff’s Office, Maryville Department of Public Safety, Missouri State Highway Patrol Maryville Zone office, Northwest Missouri State University Police Department, Maryville First Baptist Church, Laura Street Baptist Church, Maryville First Christian Church, Maryville First United Methodist Church, Northeast Nodaway High School, South Nodaway High School, Maryville High School, Jefferson High School, West Nodaway R-1 School, St. Gregory’s Catholic Church and School, Horace Mann Laboratory School, Nodaway County Administration Building and the Nodaway County Courthouse.
