PERU Clothing Drive

Take a moment to look through your closets this weekend for any clothes or school items that you may not want anymore! We will be collecting men, women, and children’s clothing, winter coats & accessories, shoes/boots, blankets, backpacks, socks, and any school supplies (pencils/pens/notebooks/etc.) as part of Tufts’ GSL Peru trip. We will directly be distributing the items to the local villages there.
There are donation boxes set up in the 7th floor student lounge, 15th floor, and on the 4th floor of Sackler Library. We will be collecting from Oct. 29th to Nov. 2nd.
Anything will be much appreciated!
