Clothe-A-Child

36th Annual Clothe-A-Child Campaign

The Rensselaer Union is proud to have been a partner in raising money for Clothe-A-Child for 35 of its 36 year history. Spear-headed by the Rensselaer Union year-after-year, thousands of dollars have been raised in support of this campaign which provides the funding so that local, area children will be clothed with winter coats, boots, hats and gloves. Opportunity helps children to succeed and be active, participating citizens – just like the students who raise money for this cause year-after-year.

The Rensselaer Union’s Clothe-A-Child Campaign has become a year-round initiative, with events that include bake sales, date auctions, canister passes at hockey games, basket raffles, golf tournaments, wing tasting events, just to name a few. We estimate that over the last 34 years, the Rensselaer Community has contributed more than $116,000 to Clothe-A-Child. And it all started with a Student Union Food Service worker named Lucy Coli who asked students to donate their change when they bought a burger or pizza!
