Clothing Drive

Each January the Office of Community and Regional Affairs conducts a clothing drive to benefit HomeFront's Suitably Dressed, Dress for Success, Isles, and Operation Fatherhood of Trenton, Mercer County organizations who collect gently used business attire for men and women.

When assigned the final project to create an "intervention on campus" in Architecture 204: Intro to Design Studio, Sandy Bole ‘16 and Julian Edgren ‘16 set high standards for themselves. Rather than relying on more readily available materials, the two sophomores spent a weekend collecting thousands of used plastic cups from four of Princeton's eating clubs for their project, which they fittingly named, "cUpcycle."
