Winter-Clothing Drive to Benefit Visiting Chinese Students

The Newman Center at Buffalo State College—in conjunction with members of the Computer Information Systems Department—has organized a winter-clothing drive for the 17 visiting Chinese students from the earthquake-ravaged Sichuan Province. Although most expenses have been paid for these students, some items have not been provided, such as winter clothing.

Needed items include pants, shirts, sweaters, winter coats, gloves, mittens, winter hats, scarves, winter boots, and socks. There are 12 female and five male students, ages 18 to 20. The clothing drive continues through October 14.

Donations may be delivered to the Newman Center, 1219 Elmwood Avenue; Chase Hall 231; or Chase Hall 204. Contact Stephen Gareau, 878-4923, for more information.
