All Day


Many of us received gifts of new clothing over the holidays. Consider sharing your gently used clothing with others in our community. PPSA will collect gently used clothing and toiletries to share with the following local organizations:

  • Bethesda Project is in need of new or gently used men’s clothing, as well as toiletries.
  • Broad Street Ministries are in need of warm men’s clothing.
  • Project HOME is in need of gently used men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, specifically pants, shirts, coats, and new socks.

JAN. 3 – 10, DROP-OFF AT A COLLECTION BOX: Collection boxes will be placed around campus from Thursday, January 3 through Thursday, January 10. Locations are listed below.


FRIDAY, JAN. 11, 8:30-11:30AM, DROP-OFF DURING THE SORTING PARTY: Penn staff members are welcomed to drop clothes off at Houston Hall’s Bistro Lobby on Friday, January 11, 8:30-11:30am. Breakfast (and coffee!) will be available. If you have time to spare, we would also enjoy your help in folding, sorting, and packaging the donated materials.
