November 18 - November 22

Hello WOC family!  Come check out some of the awesome outdoor events we
have going on this week. All events are open to the Williams College

***See added friday hike***


The Williams Outing Club will be collecting gently used coats and warm
clothing for any Williams students in need of warm winter clothing. Any
donations will be available to students and community members through a
free, long-term borrowing program. Students will be able to borrow items
for as long as they need, with the hopes they either return the clothing in
the spring or pass it along to others when they’re through.

We will be collecting from students, faculty, and staff and accepting
donations throughout the winter- we highly encourage any students heading
home for break to bring any unneeded warm clothing back to school in
February. The donation drop-off will be in the locked boxes of Paresky 1st
floor near the Park Street entrance- any and all donations are greatly
