Keep an international student warm

October 1, 2010


The Host Family Program will be opening a winter clothing "store" for international students after the midterm break. There are many international students on campus who come from milder climes and have yet to experience a Wisconsin winter. As you are preparing for the cold of our upcoming winter that we know lies (far?) ahead, please consider giving your gently used winter clothing to keep our international students warm. Outerwear -- hats, gloves/mittens, scarves, and coats -- in particular, would be much appreciated. College-student sizes, please.

You can drop off your donations at the OIE during our normal business hours (8 a.m. -4 p.m.) or they can be left on the front porch until October 20th. Clothes remaining after the drive will be given to local charities.
