Highschool-age children in need are often overlooked during the seasonal holiday drives. This year, Eugene Police is teaming up with Walmart, to collect hoodies for highschoolers. Typically, highschoolers opt to wear a hoodie rather than a coat. Hoodies for High-schoolers is aiming to collect as many new hoodies as possible and we hope you can help! Thank you to Walmart, who has seeded the drive with a $1,000 cash donation.
Local school districts will distribute the hoodies, allowing the high-school age teens to pick what they are comfortable wearing.
The drive is from December 1 through December 31 and you can donate new hoodies at the following locations:
EPD Headquarters – 300 Country Club Road
EPD Downtown Station – 960 Olive
Donations of Walmart Gift Cards for hoodies – drop off or mail to Eugene Police Community Engagement Team Supervisor Cherie Nelson, Eugene Police, 300 Country Club Road, Eugene, Oregon 97401. (the drive can’t accept cash, check or credit card donations). Questions? Contact CET Supervisor Nelson at 541.682.2746.
