On November 13 at 5:30 p.m. D&M Coffee downtown on 3rd ave and Pine st. in Ellensburg is going to be turned into a haven for all things caffeine, music and of course, warm fuzzy attire. In a time that literally couldn’t be any colder, Unheard Voices: Warming the Winter aims to add another layer during these harsh winter months with a coat, glove, hat and scarf clothing drive.
Unheard Voices is an event sponsored by the Center for Leaders and Community Engagement (CLCE) and Growth International Volunteer Excursions (GIVE) where live music and community service are melded together for one kick butt event.
Music makes the world go ’round
This year, in addition to live music performed by local talent, a clothing drive will be the main focus, with additional locations throughout Ellensburg including: Ellensburg Public Library, CWU Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) room 256, SURC Pit, D&M Coffee downtown, D&M Coffee on Water St. and Super 1 Foods.
CWU students David Stevens, Tabitha Hardy, Joshua Arquette-Rotman and community member Kyle Bain will all be performing live. Oh and did I mention it’s free? That’s right, the only thing you’ll have to spend money on is that PSL.
Donate to spread warmth
The materials donated through the clothing drive will all be transferred to benefit Abuse Support Prevention Education Now (ASPEN) where they will be distributed to abuse victims throughout Kittitas County.
Help support community members in need by coming on down to Unheard Voices: Warming the Winter. There’s nothing like a free concert to get you going after you’ve downed copious amounts of caffeine. And don’t forget to bring your old winter clothes you haven’t worn in years, or if you’re feeling generous, feel free to buy new clothes as well. Anything and everything helps.
