If you would like to donate any clothes, please bring it to the Office of Student Life & Leadership Development (OSLLD) or to the NYPIRG Office and the clothes will be delivered to those who need them the most. OSLLD is in NAC Room 1/210 and NYPIRG in NAC Room 1/120.
The AccessAbility center is collecting coats and warm clothing for New York Cares, the city's largest volunteer organization. New York Cares is aiming to collect a record 200,000 coats this year, and needs 50,000 coats immediately to distribute in areas that were significantly impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Please bring your gently used coats and warm clothing to the AccessAbility Center, NAC 1/218, before the last day of final exams.

Student Health Services & Counseling is starting a collection for those affected by Hurricane Sandy.  We are collecting small, but necessary items, such as toiletries that are essential for Health and Wellness! Items can include toothpaste, toothbrushes, sanitary napkins, soap, deodorant, baby wipes, diapers, tissues, hand sanitizers, lip balm, lotion, etc.

Form LDSS-2291 is available at: http://otda.ny.gov/programs/applications/2291.pdfand at local Department of Social Services offices. You can find the location of your local Department of Social Services by calling the toll-free New York State Temporary Assistance Hotline at 1-800-342-3009.
