Community Outreach Group Holds Hats and Mittens Drive

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati (UC) Medical Center Community Outreach group is coordinating the third annual Hats & Mittens Drive, which collects hats and mittens for underprivileged children at local elementary schools. This year, the group has set a goal of collecting 2,500 sets of hats and mittens. They have already committed to delivering hats and mittens for all of the students at Burton Elementary and Parham Elementary for a total of 1,010 sets. By reaching the 2,500 mark the Community Outreach group will be able to add two or three more schools.

This year's drive will last from November 12 through December 7. Colorfully wrapped boxes will be distributed in as many Medical Center offices as possible to collect the donations. In addition, this year Fifth Third Bank has agreed to put collection boxes in about 10 branch offices located in the university area. Financial contributions will also be accepted and will be used to buy additional sets of hats and mittens. For more information, please call Bill Hoffert (513) 558-0263 or Heather O'Neill (513) 558-2463.
