The dropping temperatures seem especially cold to our newest students unused to Minnesota’s quickly changing seasons. And, since most international students arrive from warm weather countries, they have no cold weather clothing to bring with them.
Thus, International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) is collecting warm winter gear in good, usable condition for our international students. Along with winter coats, most needed are hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, boots, sweaters, and sweatshirts. Adult sizes only, specifically:
- Men’s medium (a few large and XL); boots sized 8-11/11.5
- Women’s medium (a few small and large); boots sized 8 or 10
You may bring your donations to Student Affairs in Bockman 249, or leave them in the tub outside the office. No additional clothing is being accepted at this time.
Remaining items will be distributed to our seminary community through the seminary Food Shelf. Any items not used will be donated locally to those in need.
