In the hopes of providing aid to Syrian refugees located across the world, the Arab Student Association is hosting a winter clothing drive. Leaders of the student organization, which states that its mission is to create a forum for people interested in Arab language, culture and politics, said they hope to raise awareness about the crisis in Syria and to foster Arab solidarity. “My hope is that this clothing drive will not only provide a direct way to help the refugees, but also to raise awareness about the magnitude of the Syrian crisis,” said Ama Frederickson ’17, secretary of the Arab Student Association. At the moment, five clothing collection boxes exist across campus in locations including Willard Straight Hall, Hans Bethe House and Anabel Taylor Hall. Plans are underway to expand to North Campus, with donation sites recently setup at Balch Hall and Robert Purcell Community Center.
