UND still collecting winter coats for UND students

Earlier this month, the UND Student Involvement & Parent Programs Office managed a winter coat collection program, coupled with the distribution of winter gear for UND students in need. All donations received were gone by 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24! Since that time, the Office has fielded numerous requests from additional students hoping to acquire a more suitable winter coat. So the Office is resurrecting the program!

If you have winter gear you no longer need (coats, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, boots), UND’s Student Involvement & Parent Programs Office would be most grateful for even more donations!

Gear can be delivered to Suite 114 of the UND Memorial Union between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. until further notice. Items will be distributed to UND students in need. Items not distributed to students will be donated to a local charitable organization.
