Free coats, boots, hats, mittens and scarves are available to those in need through Warm-Up Week, a special partnership between the Sustainability Office and the Students Helping Oz Peers (SHOP) on-campus pantry. 

The campus community is welcome to stop by Hewitt weekdays between 9 am to 5 p.m., through Friday, Feb. 26, and take whatever clothing they need.

“You can just come right through and browse and take what you want,” said Sarah Smelko, a Sustainability Office intern and senior global studies major. "Everything is free."

Most items were donated by the campus community, while some are hand-made.

Smelko added that the drive supports sustainability in showing that clothes are re-usable and can also be donated to find new use with others instead of being viewed as disposable with changing fashion. Generosity, organizers noted, is always in fashion.
