On Wednesday January 15, Trent International and OPIRG Peterborough ran their second Winter Clothing Drive of the season. The Winter Clothing Drive is one of the many events OPIRG is running this semester to create student and community-based engagement on social justice and environmental issues. The Clothing Drive connects students and the community, brings warm clothes to those in need, prevents used clothes from going to the landfill, and fights against excessive consumerism. According to Jessica Evans, the International Student Programs Assistant, the Winter Clothing Drive is particularly important for International students, as they may have left something behind or are in need of extra gear for a Canadian winter.
Evans added that “International students pay a lot of money, and spending that extra money on clothes is another financial burden. So just to know that there are organizations like OPIRG where they can get access to a Free Market is really useful.” Evans is referring to OPIRG’s Free Market, an anti-capitalist and anti-consumerism program that collects donations and gives them back for free to anyone who wants them. The Market is in Sadleir House, open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and has a lot more winter gear left to choose from.
Thank you to everybody who donated to this year’s Winter Clothing Drive!

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
"Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system."
