SGA Organizes Clothing Drive to Benefit Students in Need

Craig F. Goess Student Center

WINTERVILLE—The Pitt Community College Center of Student Life is teaming up with the college’s Student Government Association (SGA) this month on a clothing drive that will assist students in need.

PCC Director of Student Engagement and Leadership Danielle Ruffin says SGA members will accept “gently used” spring and summer clothing donations for men, women and children March 21-22. She said items may only be dropped off at the Craig F. Goess Student Center (Room 135) between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on those days.

“If there is anything specific we’re hoping for this go-round, it would be baby and children’s clothing items,” Ruffin said. “We have been pretty successful with men’s and women’s clothing donations, but this will be the first drive in which we’ve included children’s clothing.”

Ruffin, who is SGA’s advisor, said items received this month will be made available through the organization’s Clothing Closet in the Goess Student Center.

“We have turned what used to be the SGA Conference Room into what we now refer to as our ‘Clothing Closet,’” she said. “SGA and I started it last semester to see how students responded, and we quickly saw a need. So, this semester we decided to have it open every Monday for students.”
