LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Lock Haven University clubs and residence halls have partnered with the Salvation Army to collect clothing for distribution to the community.Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
LHU junior Josh Leadbetter is coordinating the clothing drive for the Student Cooperative Council (SCC). Clubs are competing against each other to see who can collect the most weight in gently-used clothing. Prizes for the clubs’ special accounts will be $175, $75 and $50. Similarly, the residence halls are competing for a prize of $300 into their special account.
All the collected clothing will be weighed on Friday, March 18 at the Salvation Army, 114 N. Grove Street. The winning residence hall and clubs will be announced at that time.
The clothing will be given away at no charge on Saturday, March 19 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Leadbetter explained that the clothing drive “is a way for Lock Haven University and the SCC to give back to the community.” He added that families in the community “can come and pick up whatever they might need” at no cost.
Members of the community who wish to donate clothing can take their items to the Salvation Army on Friday, March 18 starting at 6:00 p.m. Students who do not belong to a club or residence hall can also make their donations at that time.
