More than 100 coats have been collected in the ongoing drive to support Grand Valley students who need a winter coat.

The effort is organized by the Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Department of Movement Science, in collaboration with Replenish, the student resource pantry operated by the Gayle R. Davis Center for Women and Gender Equity.
