Service for Homeless - Warming Soles: A few members of the Stags football team are “Warming Soles” this Winter! Please join Jayden Bradley, Gregory Penn and Colin Mobley in their effort to collect winter survival items for the homeless. Hypothermia is a real concern for those not living in the comfort of a warm home. During the winter months, this is a real fear for many homeless individuals and families. Resisting the harsh weather, without a home and nowhere to go, is nearly impossible. That is why we are asking for your help. Please consider donating NEW socks, hats, scarves, gloves and blankets. Collection dates through Friday, February 21st. Collection Site: Convocation Center Athletic Offices (Outside of the door) Donated items will benefit homeless populations in DC and Baltimore. Thanks in advance for your support!
