Volunteer Opportunities
Clothing Drive - Your Help is Needed!
Donations Needed by September 30
W&J has an awesome opportunity to support a great cause sponsored by Do Something and H&M. We are hosting a clothing drive from now until September 30. Any unwanted, clean clothing in any condition will be accepted. The ultimate goal is to collect as close to 4,000 articles of clothing as possible (1 sock counts as 1 item too- so any socks that have a lost match are perfect for this clothing drive!)  In addition, if W&J donates more clothing than the other competing schools, dosomething.org will give us money towards an all campus party! Any support that you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Clothes can be dropped off in the donation bins in Rossin next to the mail room, or a pick-up can be scheduled for larger donation amounts.

Feel free to email Alyssa Evanoff (evanoffar@jay.washjeff.edu) with any questions at all! The W&J community may be small, but if we all do our part we can make a big impact! Please consider donating and help spread the word!
