Winter Clothing and Pet Blanket Drive

“Gently used” winter clothing items of all sizes (infants, toddlers, children, teens, men, and women) are being collected for distribution to area families that need winter clothing.  

Donated coats will be delivered to the University Sustainability Free Store and overflow will be donated to the Hunger & Health Coalition of Boone where they will be distributed to local families in need.

Watauga Humane Society also needs your help keeping their dogs, cats, and bunnies warm!

We will be collecting blankets for the local adoption center. Fleece works best as it washes well and dries quickly. They will gratefully accept any kind and any size. Please deposit them in the same boxes as the coats and we will sort them.
