Women's Basketball to Hold Coat and Blanket Collection

Women's Basketball to Hold Coat and Blanket Collection

The Youngstown State women's basketball team will be teaming up with the Salvation Army for a coat and blanket drive at its next two home games.

Fans who donate a coat or blanket at the Penguins' games on Dec. 13 and Dec. 16 will receive two general admission tickets to a regular season women's basketball game. The collection will take place at the program table in the main lobby of Beeghly Center.

"The temperature has begun to drop, causing those who are less fortunate than us to suffer from the harsh conditions," said Melissa Thompson, a senior on the team. "After brainstorming, we have decided the best way we can help these individuals is to hold a blanket and coat drive. Our hope is to make a difference in someone's life."
