Event Information

Dates: October 1 2018 Thru October 19 2018

The dates for the winter coat drive have been set and APA is pleased to again provide this service to the MSU and Lansing school district.  These items are sorted and re-distributed to MSU CAMP, which is the College Assistance Migrant Program, a residential program with students living in Holden Hall that assists migrant or seasonal farm worker students to enable them to complete their first year of college.  These students, generally from Texas are from a warm climate and come unprepared for the Michigan winters and lack financial means. Items collected are also shared with the Lansing School Education Association (LSEA).


Clean, new and gently used winter coats, hats, gloves and boots will be accepted in both adult and children’s sizes.  Please no spring/summer apparel and no torn or dirty items.

The University community and the LSEA students depend on this and we need a few more APA to get involved for a quick one-time minimal time commitment.  If you could help sort coats for about an hour the evening of October 22, please contact Sue Brandt for more information at brandts@msu.edu or 355-9306.


New this year, we will offer two drive-thru locations where you can pull in and drop off coats on your way into work, rather than having to bring the coats in from your car.
