First Year Experience seminar students at California State University, Stanislaus held a “Cold Weather Survival Drive” for low-income and homeless individuals and families in Turlock on October 1 and 3. Students in MDIS 1040: Seminar in First-Year Experience teamed with their professor, Dr. Stephanie Paterson, Associate Professor of English, and the Office of Service Learning to collect new and gently used items. A student-run booth in the Quad collected 440 items for the drive and provided information on poverty and homelessness in the Turlock community.

The clothes, blankets, sleeping bags, rain gear, and toys were distributed to those in need at the Community Action and Resources for Empowerment and Sustainability (CARES) Resource Center, CSU Stanislaus’ multi-service resource facility in downtown Turlock.

A group of University students teamed up to gather winter items for the needy.
