From wrapping parties to book drives, St. Paul Academy and Summit School student clubs have been in full holiday swing. One of these groups, Students for Social Justice (SSJ) has organized a Winter Clothing Drive to gather mittens, coats and the like. The drive began Dec. 7 and is expected to continue through Dec. 16.

Drop-off boxes are available in three locations around the school–the Davern entrance, the Redleaf Commons and right outside the Dean’s office.

If everyone at the school brings in two items, including faculty, we can get over 1,000 pieces of winter clothing.”

Sophomore Emilia Hoppe, a member of SSJ, said “all of the clothing that we collect is going to go to the Neighborhood House, which is a place that among other things, helps out refugees.”

“It is really important, so that they have winter clothing,” she added.

boxes and hanging racks have been considerably full over the past couple of days. The group made a short announcement during a recent assembly about the the drive.

“If everyone at the school brings in two items, including faculty, we can get over 1,000 pieces of winter clothing,” Hoppe said, “that would be awesome.”

The drop-offs will still be available during exams week. Take the time to free some space in closets and help keep people warm during the winter. While preparing to come to school on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, bring along gently-used winter clothing to drop off.
