The Galveston College Student Government Association will launch its new Whitecaps Wardrobe collection initiative this week to provide professional clothing and other items to students later this spring.
Jose Martinez, student life coordinator, said Whitecaps Wardrobe will be implemented in two phases: collection, which begins Wednesday, March 24, and distribution, which begins in April.
Collection dropboxes will be located behind the COVID-19 screening stations in the Mary Moody Northen Center atrium, the Moody Hall lobby and the Charlie Thomas Family Applied Technology Center lobby.
Drop-offs for special items that cannot be placed in a dropbox can be scheduled through Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New and gently worn donations are requested. Please do not donate items that are dirty, wet, ripped, torn or stained.
The following items are needed:
- Professional dress clothes — dress shirts, blouses, slacks, skirts, suit coats and jackets
- Shoes, ties and belts
- New undershirts and dress socks
- Workforce clothing and materials such as scrubs and anything relevant to the programs at Galveston College
- Grooming items and supplies
- Simple accessories
Distribution will begin April 21. Students will be able to register for a time to visit the Whitecaps Wardrobe.
