Location: Center for Student Opportunity

The Alma College AmeriCorps and Office of Diversity of Inclusion are hosting a clothing drive to create a gender affirming closet for the community.  MLK Day, in the Center for Student Opportunity! 

 

Even in the era of virtual meetings, we still try and look our best from the waist up.  We are excited to be hosting a clothing drive on MLK Day!  Your donations will help create a gender affirming closet here in our community.  In its future home, Highland Blush, the closet will be resource for the campus community, and the entire Alma area.  What is a gender affirming closet?  This will be a safe space for queer, trans, non-binary, gender nonconforming, LGBTIA+ folks to receive free clothing.  In this space students and community will come together in a safe, judgement free, barrier free space to be creative and expressive in whatever way they choose.  Please join us on January 18th, 1:00pm-4:00pm, to help create this awesome resource.  See you in the CSO! 

Accepting donations of: Scots gear, binders/compressions tops, tops, bottoms, shoes and handbags, bras/bralettes, shapewear, and underwear (new and in original packaging).  Contact mccreedyek@alma.edu for more.
