Who are the people in your neighborhood?

They are people such as Zoe Gastier, who, along with her fellow Edison High School Key Club members, got students and teachers to donate about 250 sweaters Monday to the annual KeyBank United Fund Winter Sweater Drive.

The drive began all over northeast Ohio in 1997 to celebrate 30 years of the television show "Mr. Rogers Neighborhood." It took off from there.

Locally, this year marks the 14th that KeyBank, along with the Norwalk Area United Fund, have held the drive in January and February. This year's drive ends Feb. 28. This year, to date, people have donated about 375 sweaters.
