An intro to event management class is holding a glove and mitten drive, the Warm Hearts, Warming Hands event on Dec. 9.
Kayla Geier, a class member and the student event planner for the class, said that the gloves and mittens will be donated to the Bowery Mission.
The event will be held in Marillac Plaza as well as the D’Angelo Center Living Room from 10 a.m. through common hour.
The class will collect scarves, socks, gloves and hats, but will also accept monetary donations. They will be selling hot chocolate, coffee and baked goods and students will also have the chance to take a photo with Santa.
Geier said that the class aims to raise $100 from the baked goods and collect 70 donations of gloves, scarves and socks.
“We are very hopeful with our goal, we feel students will really enjoy our holiday-themed bake sale booth and photo op with Santa,” Geier said.
