North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) Student Senate is sponsoring a Coat Drive on campus, December 2 to 6, with all items and monetary donations going to North Iowa Community Action Organization to distribute to anyone in need of proper winter wear.
Students will also be at Hy-Vee East Wednesday, December 4 from 11am-1pm, standing ‘Coatless in the Cold’ in t-shirts and shorts to collect donations. “It is a great way to raise awareness for the need of winter attire in North Iowa,” said Kativa Eckholt, Student Senate Information Officer.
“North Iowa is a very giving community, we are appreciative of all the support we receive throughout the year with our projects,” said Eckholt. Last year a total of 207 coats, 34 hats, 27 pairs of gloves, 31 scarves, 3 pairs of snow boots, a pair of snow pants, and $543.44 were collected.
