ERGs to Sponsor Winter Necessity Drive through Oct. 21

Help support CMU's employee resource groups by donating items during their Winter Necessity Drive. Donations will benefit Veterans Place, a Pittsburgh-based organization that empowers veterans to transition out of homelessness and helps at-risk veterans become engaged, valuable citizens who contribute to their communities.

With your generous support, the ERGs are collecting the following necessities:

  • Hats, gloves, scarves and socks, new with tags, in men's, women's and children's sizes
  • Unopened toiletries

To Donate

  • On Campus: Drop off items October 20 and 21 from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. in the Cohon University Center, Wean Commons (first floor, outside of the Connan Room).
    • 30-minute free parking is available in the East Campus Garage.
  • Online: Purchase items via the Clothing Drive Registry by October 21.
