Violence awareness groups to spread the warmth

November 19, 2007 12:00AM

With temperatures set to drop this week, three Pittsburg State University organizations are teaming up just in time to collect coats and blankets for families in need.

Students Against Violence through Education (SAVE), along with Men for Violence Prevention (MVP) and the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) are collecting clean, warm clothing and blankets today through Wednesday, Nov. 28. Drop-off boxes are located in Whitesitt Hall, Grubbs Hall, Axe Library, and at the information desk in the Overman Student Center.

All donated items will go to local families through the Children's Advocacy Center and the Crisis Resource Center of Pittsburg.

On Nov. 28, the organizations will also be raising money for victims of violence. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Oval, members will be handing out cups of hot chocolate as well as flat glass Christmas ornaments that can be personally decorated. A donation of $2 is suggested.

For more information on how you can give, contact Donna Miller at 417-684-0280.
