Social Work Club, WGS program organizing coat drive
The Social Work Club has partnered with students in the women, gender and sexuality studies program to organize Salve Regina’s annual campus coat drive.
Students, faculty and staff are invited to donate gently worn winter coats in all sizes. Hats, gloves and scarves are also needed. Donations can be dropped off in Mona Dube’s office in the O’Hare Academic Building, Room 101.
Donations will benefit St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Newport and Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island in Providence. 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.
Donations will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 2, but coats that can be donated prior to Thanksgiving are especially welcomed. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated, so that no family member is left without a warm winter coat this year.
