Kellogg Community College is accepting gently worn hooded or crewneck sweatshirts at the Bruin Bookstore this month as part of a Hoodies for the Homeless donation campaign for those in need.

The bookstore, located on the first floor of the Lane-Thomas Building on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, will accept the sweatshirts through the end of the month during regular business hours, which are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Fridays.

All sizes, colors and styles of hooded or crewneck sweatshirts are welcome, and those who donate will receive 25 percent off the purchase of a new KCC hooded sweatshirt.

Catherine James, manager of the Bruin Bookstore, said the College’s goal is to collect at least 100 shirts to distribute locally to those who need them this coming season; last year, the store collected 226.
