Social work club, department organizing coat drive
The Social Work Club has partnered with the Department of Social Work to organize Salve Regina’s annual campus coat drive.
Students, faculty and staff are invited to donate gently worn winter coats in all sizes. Especially needed this year are coats for children of all ages, including adolescents. Hats, gloves and scarves will also be accepted.
Donations should be dropped off in Mona Dube’s office in the O’Hare Academic Building, Room 101 by Monday, Nov. 20.
Donations will benefit St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Newport. St. Paul’s will distribute the donations during its annual Buy Nothing Day (the Friday after Thanksgiving) to members of the Aquidneck Island community who are in need of winter gear.
