The University of Connecticut Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will once again conduct a "Winter Wear Drive" this year. The drive will take place at the UConn vs. Syracuse football game on Saturday, November 5 at Rentschler Field, which begins at noon.
Donations can be dropped off at FanFest (outside of Gate B) from 8 a.m. to noon and at all entrance gates starting at 10:30 a.m. until kickoff.
Patrons are asked to bring gently-used coats, hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, etc. to the game and they will be collected as they enter the stadium.
The items will be donated to the Cornerstone Foundation in Rockville, Conn.; the Windham Area Interfaith Ministries of Willimantic, Conn., and the Salvation Army of Willimantic, Conn.
