Share Warmth This Winter:
Hats, gloves, scarves, and socks can mean so much

Drive Dates: November 20 - December 14, 2018

In the frigid Pittsburgh winters, some of our neighbors do not have the basic necessities to stay warm. By donating new and unused hats, gloves, scarves, and socks for all ages, we can help our neighbors in need. 

Donated items will be given to those in our community who need them most, including attendees at the annual Christmas Day at Pitt event and those identified by local partner organizations. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

  • Alumni Hall
  • Benedum Hall

  • Craig Hall
  • Eureka Building
  • Hillman Library
  • Mervis Hall
