UT alumni groups collecting hats, mittens for elementary school students

While UT alumni and friends are out shopping for the upcoming holidays, alumni organizations are asking for their help to make an immediate impact on a child by picking up some extra winter weather clothing.

The fourth annual hat and mitten collection drive for area elementary schools has kicked off and donations will be accepted through December.

Each year the drive seeks donations of mittens and hats in youth and small adult sizes. School supplies, such as pencils, pens, paper,hand sanitizer and Kleenex, also will be accepted and used to help studentssucceed during the remainder of the school year.

Donations can be dropped off at the Driscoll Alumni Center in Room 2001, from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout themonths of November and December. The Driscoll Alumni Center is located on the UT Main Campus at the intersection of Bancroft Street and University Hills Boulevard.

The collection drive is sponsored by the Judith Herb College of Education, Health Science and Human Service Alumni Affiliate with participation from the Engineering Alumni Affiliate, Language, Literature and Social Science Alumni Affiliate, The Latino Alumni Affiliate and Natural Science and Mathematics Alumni Affiliate.

The hat and mitten collection drive is in addition to ongoing collections of books, puzzles, flashcards and games throughout the year to be donated to the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library system throughout the school year. Donations of pre-school, primary or teen books in fairly good condition can be dropped off at the Driscoll Alumni Center in Suite 2014.

All donations will benefit students of area elementary schools.
