M State-Wadena Nursing Club collects winter gear for children

Nursing students on the Wadena campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College are hoping to warm up the winter with a clothing drive for elementary school children.

Collection boxes are available on the campus for donations of new or gently used hats, mittens, gloves, scarves, coats or jackets, snow pants or boots. Donations will be displayed on a Giving Tree in the main lobby of the campus before they are delivered to the elementary schools in Wadena, Sebeka and Verndale for distribution to children in need.

The collection boxes will be on campus through Nov. 11.

The Giving Tree project is sponsored by the M State Nursing Club. Before the holidays, the Nursing Club will also sponsor a Toy Drive Challenge, with students in various M State programs competing against each other to collect toys for the Wadena Area Chamber of Commerce's Santa program.
