'Gently used' clothing needed for annual drive
Posted January 6, 2010; 06:30 p.m.
The University is conducting its annual clothing drive Jan. 20-27 to benefit HomeFront's Suitably Dressed and the Mercer County Community College Career Training Institute, two organizations that collect "gently used" business attire for men and women.
The clothing goes to individuals who are entering or re-entering the work force, and all types of business and business-casual clothing in good condition are needed. These include suits, dress slacks, khakis, dress shirts, collared casual shirts, blazers, skirts, sweaters, dresses, jackets, coats, ties, shoes, belts, jewelry, handbags and other accessories.
Items can be brought to the new drop-off location at 126 Alexander St. (side entrance) weekdays between 8 and 9 a.m. and 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.
Volunteers are needed during collection hours. For more information or to volunteer to assist with the clothing drive, contact Erin Metro in the Office of Community and Regional Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org or (609) 258-5144.
The drive is coordinated by the Office of Community and Regional Affairs, the Department of Building Services, the Office of Design and Construction, and the Office of the Provost.
