Coat and Blanket Drive For Downtown Rescue Mission


     Drake State’s recent coat and blanket drive collected more than forty coats and 10 blankets for the Downtown Rescue Mission.
     The items were donated by Drake State students, staff, and faculty. The coat and blanket drive was a joint effort between two campus organizations, TRIO Student Support Services and the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP).
     The coats, blankets, six hats, and three pairs of gloves were delivered to the rescue mission by members of the TRIO staff.
