Winter wear donations collected through Oct. 31

Do you have new or gently used coats, hats or gloves you’re willing to donate? If so, drop off your winter outerwear in one of the Winter Coat Exchange donation boxes located throughout Fermilab by Oct. 31.

Helping Hands, an outreach committee formed by the Equal Opportunity and Diversity Office, is continuing to accept new or gently used winter outerwear for its winter coat exchange. Employees, users and visitors are encouraged to donate coats, hats and gloves for women, men and children. Collection boxes are located throughout the Fermilab campus, and collection ends on Oct. 31.

On Nov. 13 and 14 from 3-6 p.m. in the Small Dining Room, the Fermilab community will have the opportunity to select items from those collected. Items not selected will be donated to the Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry and Clothes Closet. For more information, view this flyer or contact Samantha Poeppelman at x3933 or at
