Women’s groups mean business in December clothing drive

Women in Science and Engineering and the Murfreesboro chapter of the American Association of University Women are joining forces to collect business clothing for women in need.

WISE encourages the public to drop off new or gently used “business casual” attire and accessories this week at four MTSU locations:

  • the lobby of Monohan Hall;
  • in front of Room 317 in Todd Hall;
  • in Room 111C in the Wiser-Patten Science Building; and
  • the lobby of the James E. Walker Library.

A printable campus map is available at

The AAUW also will take donations at its monthly meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13,  at Forest Oaks I Clubhouse, 1002 E. Northfield Blvd., in Murfreesboro. (From Memorial/US231 heading north, turn right onto East Northfield and drive about one mile. Forest Oaks I Clubhouse is on the right with parking in the front.) AAUW will accept donations at any time during the meeting but not before or after.

All items then will be distributed to Greenhouse Ministries, the Goodwill Career Center and the Domestic Violence Program, Inc.

WISE also invites students to stop by Monohan Hall at 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, for free breakfast goodies and information about WISE and AAUW.
