Today Compassion Club members hosted a winter clothing drive for the Shelter House in Iowa City. Students and staff could ditch-the-dress-code for $2 or a donation of clothing. Besides all the clothing donations, $150 will be given to the Shelter House which will pay for six people to stay one night in the shelter.
The Shelter House goes beyond just giving a bed and food by helping homeless adults find work and permanent housing. In the winter they also open a second shelter. You can read more about their program at http://www.
