KCC Bruin Bookstore collecting Hoodies for the Homeless in November

Kellogg Community College’s Bruin Bookstore is holding its annual Hoodies for the Homeless donation campaign through the month of November.

As part of the initiative, the KCC bookstore accepts gently worn hooded or crewneck sweatshirts and coats, ultimately delivering them to the Charitable Union in Battle Creek for free distribution to community members in need. This year marks the 10th 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 goals this year are to collect at least 100 sweatshirts and 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 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.

For more information, contact the Bruin Bookstore at 269-965-4128.
