Calhoun’s Student Ambassadors to Deliver Over 200 Blankets to the North Alabama Coalition for the Homeless

October 31, 2017

For the past three years, Calhoun’s Warhawk Student Ambassadors conduct an Annual Winter Drive on the Huntsville and Decatur campus to collect new and gently used blankets, jackets, scarves and gloves to deliver to those less fortunate. The students deliver al of the donated items to the North Alabama Coalition for the Homeless (NACH). From there, the NACH distributes thousands of blankets and winter items to the homeless as part of their Annual Blanket and Cold Weather Gear Drive.

This year, the Warhawks received a tremendous outpour of support from our local communities in Madison, Morgan and Limestone counties. “When the temperatures begin to drop in North Alabama, most of us are blessed to have a blanket to grab or a jacket to help block the harsh frigid temperatures. Unfortunately, there are so many that do not. We are so thankful for all of the donations we have received and learn each year that the gift of warmth is priceless.”, commented Sherika Attipoe, Warhawk Sponsor.

Calhoun’s Warhawk Student Ambassadors will deliver all donated winter items to the NACH office, 1580 Sparkman Drive, Suite 111, Huntsville on Wednesday, November 1 at 1:30 p.m.
