Extra Hats or Coats? We will Take Them!

Refugee Student Alliance is partnering with Physicians for Human Rights for a fourth annual Coat Drive from Oct. 15 to Dec 15. This year, Williams Library will host one of their collection boxes.  The groups are collecting new or gently used coats, gloves, scarves, hats, sweaters, and winter boots. All items will be donated to Saint’s Place and Mary’s Place, not-for-profit organizations that distribute items to former refugees arriving to Rochester.

Highland’s collection box is located in the Williams Library and other boxes may be found in Strong Memorial Hospital, the River Campus, and affiliated locations. Questions? Call Williams staff at 1-6761 or email natalia_golub@urmc.rochester.edu

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who donated! Happy Holidays!
