Below are more ways to help the community. Additional volunteer opportunities were published in the December AT PENN calendar, see www.upenn.edu/almanac/volumes/v52/n13/deccal05.html.
Coat Drive Through December 15: Does your gently used winter coat still have some serviceable miles on it? Warm coats in good condition, for both children and adults, are needed by a number of charitable organizations in the Philadelphia area. We do not have the facilities or funds to clean donated items. Freshly laundered (or recently cleaned) items are especially appreciated. Bring in your gently used coats to be donated to area shelters.
For the third year in a row, the Linguistics Department is working with the Penn Volunteers in Public Service, Center for Community Partnerships office, in organizing a Winter Coat Drive. If you have a coat (or coats) to contribute to our drive, you are welcome to donate them at either of the locations listed below.
