Fifteen percent of Americans living in poverty consider a coat an out-of-budget expense, according to OneWarmCoat.org.
The Social Work Student Association is doing its part by hosting a winter clothing drive from now until March 9.
You can make your donations at Metropolitan State University’s Saint Paul campus in the bins located inside of the Student Center, Founder’s Hall, and Library and Learning Center.
Donated items will be available for pickup at the free shopping event on Sunday, March 11, from 1 to 4 p.m. in room 101 of the Student Center.
This event is open to the public.
