bc's financial literacy program
On behalf of Successful Start, Boston College's Financial Literacy Program, we would like to invite you to participate in our fourth annual Clothing Drive. From October 1–25 there will be collection bins in the lobby of Lyons Hall for people to donate New and Gently used coats, sweaters, scarves, gloves, hats, etc. for Boston College students. These items will be offered to those students at Boston College who would not otherwise be able to afford them as well as our international students. The last three years have been such a tremendous success. We would love to keep the tradition going this year! This is a great opportunity to give back to the Boston College community!
