McNick supports the community with the annual coat drive

The 14th Annual Warm Clothing Drive kicked off on Oct. 27 and ends Friday, Nov. 14.  All are encouraged to send any new or gently used coats, gloves, hat, sweaters, sweatshirts, and other warm articles of clothing to room 204 by Nov. 14.

The warm clothes that are being collected go to St. Vincent De Paul and Hope Emergency in Batavia.  These organizations support the less fortunate, and McNicholas students have also been more than willing to help these organizations gather warm clothing for the community each fall.

“The goal of the coat drive is to collect warm clothing to donate to the less fortunate who do not have proper clothing for the winter,” Service Club President Michelle Rowekamp said.

Sam Roflow, Service Club moderator, works with Service Club to make the coat drive happen.

“Although we have a long way to go this year, the number goal of the coat drive is about 500 to 1,000 articles of clothing,” said Roflow.

Roflow explained that the school’s experience through the number of years it has hosted this event have eased the process of making it successful.

“It does not take a lot of time to put all of this together since it is the fourteenth year that we have been doing this.  It takes a little time to put together all the clothes and to get it all to the destination,” Roflow said.
