Willimantic, Conn. - Members of Lamba Pi Eta, the communication honor society at Eastern Connecticut State University, are conducting a public winter coat drive through Dec. 1. The society is asking people to donate old coats to help the less fortunate in Willimantic.
Donors can drop off coats in a red box inside the Communication Department, located on the second floor of the Communication Building.
"We are holding the coat drive for the benefit of the less fortunate," said Christine Cardot, president of Lamba Pi Eta. "As a community, our goal is to collect 100 coats. Something as small as a coat can make a significant difference during these cold winter months. This experience has been very heart-warming because I get to see everyone pitch in and do what he or she can to help others."
