The free items have been donated by caring faculty, staff, students and community members for MWCC student. The free items include winter jackets, dress jackets, gloves, scarves, hats, and boots for students in need.

“Students can come by any time and just grab something,” said Shelley Errington Nicholson, Director of the Brewer Center for Civic Learning & Community Engagement that coordinated the coat drive.
