VetStar Clothing Drive
The College of Media & Communication Graduate Student Society (COMC GSS) is holding a philanthropy event dedicated to serving VetStar, a local organization devoted to helping military veterans in need. We will be collecting warm clothing for local veterans, and their families, that are in need of such items on December 5 – 7. During the event, both new and used warm clothing will be accepted. Each clothing item will correspond with a specific point value. The group with the highest points will be declared the winner, at the end of the event. The point system is as follows:
- Hats/Gloves/Scarves = 1 point
- Sweaters = 3 points
- Coats/Jackets = 6 points
We are seeking your assistance in making this a valuable event for military veterans in the Lubbock Community. In order to boost donations, we are offering at least three pizzas to the student organization that donates the most articles of clothing (by point value).
Donations will be accepted and scored at the College of Media and Communication during the designated drive times. When students drop off a donation, they will be asked what, if any, organization they are a member of. Once the drive is complete, winners will be contacted for the distribution of the prize. More details with specific times and drop-off locations will be announced next week.
Furthermore, students donating items will be eligible to win prizes such as a Kliff Kingsbury autographed football and mini helmet and various gift certificates to local businesses. The student will receive a ticket (corresponding to the point value listed above) for their donation. Drawings for all prizes will be conducted immediately when the collection ends on December 7 and winners will be notified.
Any questions related to the student group competition can be directed to Collin Berke, College of Media and Communication Graduate Student Society Vice president, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We sincerely look forward to your group assisting in making this a warm and joyful holiday season for the military veterans in the Lubbock Community.
