Girls On The Run Coat Drive

 Barnard's first Girls On The Run group has a 5K race coming up on November 20th. As part of the curriculum, each group puts together a Community Impact Project. Our group will be participating in a Winter Coat and Accessories Drive which is open to everyone in the Barnard community.

We will have a box in the front lobby and we'll be accepting gently used children and adult winter coats, hats, scarves, sweaters, and boots. The girls will be taking all donated items to the 5K event. Once the girls present these items on behalf of Barnard, the Girls On The Run organization will distribute to groups that can benefit from them.

We would love any support that you can provide in donating items. It's a great opportunity to go through your closet and donate items that no longer fit or that you no longer need. You can drop them in the box in the front lobby or send them to school with your children. Our group of girls is very excited to be doing something good for the community, and we appreciate your help in making this possible.

Thank you for your support and we welcome anybody who would like to come cheer the girls on at their first 5K event on November 20th on Belle Isle as well!
