Duquesne University AAPS Chapter Holds Coat Drive For Pittsburghers In Need

AAPSDuquesne University's American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Student Chapter recently organized a winter coat drive to benefit men and women in need in our community. The AAPS Student Chapter collaborated with Pittsburgh Mercy Foundation for this program.

Donated clothes were collected in a donation box in Mellon Hall from January 5 to January 20, 2018. Faculty and students donated coats, gloves, pants, and other clothing items essential for keeping people warm throughout the winter months. After finishing the collections, members of the student chapter handed over the collected clothes to the Pittsburgh Mercy Foundation.

"The AAPS Student Chapter wants to thank all of the faculty and students who have donated generously for this great cause," said Nayeem Hossain, AAPS Student Chapter Chair.
