Academic Health Center Fourth Annual Hats and Mittens Drive

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati Medical Center Community Outreach hats and mittens drive is in full swing. Thousands of Cincinnati area children have benefited from the drive, which collects hats and mittens for underprivileged children at local elementary schools. This is the fourth year of giving hats and mittens to children in underserved schools in Cincinnati. This year, the goal is to collect 10,000 sets of hats and mittens. With this goal, the group will be able to donate hats and mittens to 20 area schools.

This year's drive kicked off yesterday and will last through December 6. Colorfully wrapped boxes will be distributed in as many Medical Center and West Campus offices as possible to collect the donations. Fifth Third Bank is partnering with the Medical Center and hats and mittens can be dropped off at approximately 20 local 5/3 branch locations. Financial contributions will also be accepted and will be used to buy additional sets of hats and mittens.

For more information or to volunteer, please call Heather Cox at (513) 558-4554 or visit the Community Outreach Web site at http://www.mcmfss.uc.edu/community/hatsmittens.cfm.
