Donations Needed–Winter Clothing Closet


Attention Middlebury College Community!

The time has come to begin collecting donations for the annual Winter Clothing Closet!  See below for how to help.

What it is:

Each year, the Commons Residential Advisors (CRAs) and International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) team up to organize a clothing drive to benefit new international and U.S. students (especially those who have never lived in a cold climate) who need warm winter clothes.

What we’re looking for:

We seek “like-new” or “gently-used” winter clothing. In particular, we’re looking for winter coats, jackets, hats, mittens/gloves, scarves, and footwear/boots that would appeal to college students.

Where to bring your donations:

Collection boxes can be found in the following locations from October 5-October 23, 2016:

    • Atwater Dining— near the dining room entrance.
    • Athletics Complex— inside the main entrance by the information desk.
