Members of the Lambda Pi Eta will host a warm winter drive before the brink of the holiday season in support of the women and families of the Lydia House.
The facility provides emergency services for women and families in need of immediate assistance. To assist its efforts, the communication honor society will be accepting campuswide donations for the Warm Winter Drive from Dec. 1 - 17.
Students gathered on Nov. 15 to wrap three boxes, which will be placed throughout the university for the warm winter clothing donations. The students gathered in UNO's Speech Center.
