UCARE Creates Free, Anonymous Ursinus Community Closet
“It’s been an absolute dream come true,” said Assistant Director of UCARE Angela Upright ’17. The idea, which Upright said had been percolating among faculty and staff for some years, was suggested to her by Nicole Ivaska, an assistant professor of health and exercise physiology.
They applied for and received a $2,500 Inclusive Community Grant from Ursinus DICE. The team used the grant to buy clothing racks, hangers, laundry bins, and other equipment to keep up with the many donations coming their way from Ursinus community members. The clothes were sorted by volunteer faculty, staff, and students on the eventful day this filming took place.
