Kellogg Community College’s Bruin Bookstore is expanding its annual Hoodies for the Homeless donation campaign into October to align with the Charitable Union’s winter coat collection.
The KCC bookstore usually runs the initiative each November, accepting gently worn hooded or crewneck sweatshirts and coats and delivering them to the Charitable Union in Battle Creek for free distribution to community members in need. This year marks the ninth iteration of the annual campaign.
All sizes, colors and styles of hooded or crewneck sweatshirts and coats are welcome, and those who donate will receive 25% off the purchase of a new KCC hooded sweatshirt.
The Bruin Bookstore’s goal this season is to collect at least 100 sweatshirts and to attempt to beat the record of 226 articles of clothing collected over the course of a single campaign.
The bookstore, located on the first floor of the Lane-Thomas Memorial Building on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, is accepting the clothing donations now through the end of November during regular business hours, which are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays.
