Community donates to make Men of Honor clothing drive a success

04.25.2014 | By Jeannie Peng-Armao

Thanks to the San Jacinto College community, the Men of Honor clothing drive was a success with donations of more than 45 men's blazers and sports jackets, 15 suits, 100 pairs of pants, 60 button shirts, 80 T-shirts, 15 pairs of shoes, 15 belts, and socks. Women’s clothing included four suits, more than 40 tops, 20 pairs of pants (including jeans), and 30 pairs of shoes.

Many students were able to receive free clothing before the remaining donations were picked up by Purple Heart due to the work of the Men of Honor student volunteers and the coordination of the college-wide clothing drive by Leander Nash, disability service counselor with San Jacinto College.
