Coat and Boot Drive happening now through Nov 28th

EXTENDED until 11/28! Sargent will be collecting clean, gently used coats and boots for a holiday drive. The boots and coats will be donated to two local charities, one of which is Catie's Closet. Catie's Closet is an organization serving 54 Massachusetts and New Hampshire schools that provides clothes and toiletries to students ages 4-18 years old, free of charge. These students attend schools that have a poverty rate of 50% or above. Donated items are placed in an unused room within the school as a permanent resource for at-need students, and children are given access to the "closet" in a discreet manner by faculty manners. Let's help them fill the "closet"! A bin for the coats and boots will be placed in the Sargent main lobby this week, and will remain there until Wednesday, November 21st. Thank you in advance for your generous donations as we help those in need this holiday season! Learn more about Catie's Closet by clicking here.
