COMM 231 Clothing Drive
The social networking class (COMM 231) used Facebook contacts, converging technologies and social tenacity to engage their communities.
This work included:
- Recruiting over 5000 Facebook Friends
- Engaging over 10 business regarding clothing/food/service donations (Documented/photographed/shared)
- Engaging hundreds of students/community members (Documented/photographed/shared)
Over 2 tons of gently used clothes were donated in two weeks. These clothes will be sorted and distributed to homeless families and shelters in the coming weeks.
Such initiatives can be sustainable, while offering necessary deliverables for individuals and organization. It was quite hopeful engaging in this work given the events of last weekend.
