High school club holds coat drive

Wintertime in the desert means nighttime lows in the 40s. For people on the streets, the cold may be inescapable.

Sunnyslope High School’s student-led humanitarian activism group, S.T.A.N.D., will hold a winter coat drive Dec. 14-21 to help those living on the street find some warmth this winter. New and gently-used, clean coats for both adults and children can be dropped off at the Sunnyslope High School front office, 35 W. Dunlap Ave., between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

An additional drop-off site is located at the Kharma Life Center, 700 W. Campbell Ave., Ste. 1. Hours of operation are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Donations will be sent to local Arizona shelters to benefit homeless families this winter.

S.T.A.N.D. unites compassionate, like-minded activists to raise awareness and funds for humanitarian issues across the world. Each school year, the club provides its members and community with several opportunities to develop a global perspective, spread awareness, and promote empathy.
