Staff Council Committee Collects Winter Gear

The University and Community Relations Committee of Truman’s Staff Council is providing an opportunity for the campus to help local children who need warm outerwear for the approaching cold weather.

The annual “Head to Toe” drive will run from Oct. 21-28. The committee encourages donations of warm hats, scarves, gloves, mittens and boots.

Those wishing to donate can place items in the collection boxes located in the Student Union Building, the Career Center, Pickler Memorial Library, the Physical Plant Office in Kirk Building, the Barnett Hall lobby and the McClain Hall lobby.

For the last two years, Truman staff members have transported boxes and bags of winter wear to area schools so the items could be distributed to children in need. The committee does not accept monetary donations.

In addition, the Staff Council Committee now supports “Cold Turkey” smoking cessation classes. The classes are free and occur both on and off campus.

The on-campus classes will take place from 8-9 p.m. on Oct. 22, 29, Nov. 5, 12, 19, and Dec. 3 in Pershing 301. For more information about these classes, and the ones taking place off campus, e-mail
