A “Paws”-itive Clothing Option on Campus

Heads up! This article was imported from a previous version of The Campus Citizen. If you notice any issues, please let us know.

For many, purchasing a new set of apparel before a job interview or a special occasion is not an easy task. At Paw’s Closet, however, this struggle is heard and addressed. On Nov. 20, a donation day was held by volunteers of the closet in order to stock up on clothing for the remainder of the year.

With the winter season quickly approaching, senior Cassidy Caudill voices her concerns for students who do not have adequate resources to properly brace the cold weather. 

“A lot of students face housing insecurity and food insecurity,” Caudill said. “They shouldn’t have to worry about getting a coat.”

Although the closet was designed to help students in need, Caudill also expresses the idea that everyone who is enrolled at IUPUI is invited to shop at the closet. From blazers to dresses, students should feel welcome to stop by and choose from a wide variety of clothing options. 

“I think one of the bigger things we’re trying to do is get rid of the stigma of getting help,” Caudill said. “Everyone needs a little help.”

Paw’s Closet is located in Cavanaugh Hall 117 and is open on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. and Wednesdays from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Students can not only shop at Paw’s Closet, but can donate their time to the important cause by volunteering. Positions vary based on availability and interests.
