Winter will be a little less cold thanks to T&T students

Nov 05, 2015

Winter is a wonderful time of year for many of us. Playing in the snow, warming up next to a fire, and visiting friends and family are all things that create fond memories of wintertime pasts.

But for the under-served, winter can be a dreadful time of year. 2,783 people in Kansas will not have a home to go to, according to

In response to a real need in our community, the freshman Traditions and Transitions (T&T) class hosted a glove drive in collaboration with the American Red Cross of Kansas to help collect gloves and caps for those in need. The American Red Cross also collects coats and other winter gear to help with the cold.

Newman University Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs Rosemary Neidens reported that the class had collected over 250 pairs of cloves.

Thanks to the T&T students, the winter will be a little less cold for some.
