C2D2's Campus Closet, in collaboration with the Office of Admissions, organized the "Jacket, Coats, and More Giveaway Day" as an effort to help students in need of warm clothes for the winter. Many students don't have coats or sweaters to wear for school and interviews, and Campus Closet has stepped up to help. More than 125 students came on 12/14/2017 and picked up a coat/jacket/sweater. Students expressed their gratitude in numerous emails to Kenji Terawaki, the coordinator of the drive and manager of Campus Closet, which has inspired him to continue developing more programs to help even more students.
In the near future Campus Closet, in addition to the C2D2 "professional attire" free rental service, is planning to provide salon/barber vouchers, dry-cleaning coupons, and shoe vouchers. None of these ideas would be possible without the generosity of staff members, alumni, parents, and the Tech community. For more information on how to help, please visit: campuscloset.gatech.edu
