The gauntlet has been thrown.
student body President Stephanie Biehl issued a challenge at a recent Belmont City Council meeting, a friendly clothing drive duel.
Students in a public relations class at NDNU organized the Belmont Challenge to gather clothing donations for Samaritan House's Kids Closet, which provides free clothing for children of all ages.
Samaritan House in San Mateo provides services to over 12,000 low-income individuals in San Mateo County. Parents can visit the Kids Closet and "shop" for clothing for their children at no charge. The clothing provided by Kids Closet is very important to keep children comfortable and safe throughout the year.
Battle Belmont Challenge has begun - will Belmont out donate NDNU, or will Notre Dame leave Belmont in the dust? Collection barrels are sitting in the lobby at (1 Twin Pines Lane), the (1110 Alameda De Las Pulgas) and (1045 Ralston Avenue) waiting for your contribution (anyone on Team NDNU can find donation barrels by the cafeteria and St. Mary's Hall on campus).
The latest report indicates that Belmont is ahead by a nose. But will NDNU pull ahead at the last minute?
Don't delay - the Belmont Challenge ends April 30, so you have less than a week left to help your team cross the finish line as the victor (but remember, Samaritan House will always welcome your donations)!
