Winter Clothing Drive 2017*


As the weather begins to dip this season, we are once again calling on the #OCADU community to check their wardrobes, closets, and storage for any warm, winter clothing you may no longer need.

 
DateTuesday, October 17, 2017 - 10:00am to Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 4:00pm

Location

Main Lobby, 100 McCaul Street MCA

We are looking for gently used or new:
> pants/tights
> long-sleeves
> sweaters
> jackets
> hats/gloves/mittens
> t-shirts
> socks
> and winter accessories

All donations will be distributed at the Allan Garden Food and Clothing Share (Sundays, 12-3 PM, Allan Gardens, Sherbourne/Carlton Streets).

As the city of Toronto continuously shuts down shelters and emergency services to our friends in homeless or low-income situations, and as rates and rent rise unrelentingly amidst a city bursting with wealth and austerity, we turn to community to help in hard times. We hope to see you soon, and with peace to all. Please spread the word and let your friends and family know!"

* This is a student-run initiative, three years running, which #ocaducampuslife is pleased to help promote.
