The UW-Green Bay Holiday Float Committee is collecting new and gently used supplies to help keep the less-fortunate of Green Bay toasty warm during our harsh Green Bay winter. This drive is being conducted in connection with the Green Bay Holiday Parade — Saturday, Nov. 18 — downtown Green Bay. After the parade all donations of warm clothing and blankets will be donated to Green Bay area homeless shelters and services. Please consider donating for UW-Green Bay’s Warm Wishes Winter Gear and Blanket Drive. Donation boxes are available across campus in the Dean of Students Office (Student Services 2000), Office of Student Life (University Union 150), Cofrin Library 7th floor elevator lobby, or the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences office (Theatre Hall 335). Coincidentally, it is worth noting that the bookstore’s Phoenix Friday sale for Fri., October 13 is 20% off outerwear!
Please make your donation before Wednesday, Nov.15.
