The Porter Henderson Library held the first ever installment of a series of donation drives benefitting the Concho Valley Home for Girls/Children’s Emergency Shelter.


The drive spanned two weeks, yielding hundreds of useful items and materials that will be put to use in the shelter—such materials included personal hygiene products, toys and clothing.


The library intends to make this a lasting tradition at ASU, hoping to sponsor more drives in the future.


The response from the student body was positive. Many students helped to ensure that those in need within the Tom Green County area could live a more comfortable life.


“The students’ participation in the drive was incredible,” library media assistant Autumn Barnes  said.


Barnes lead the drive, even bringing in her own children to help with the setting up of the donation boxes.


“We aimed to make the campus more aware of the needs these individuals have, where something like a coat or a pair of socks could go a long way,” Barnes said. “We put up several boxes around the campus in the hopes that students or faculty walking by would notice and be moved by the cause.”
