The clothing drive the JROTC supported started January 3 and was supposed to end January 14 but was extended to February 15. All the items that were received were taken to the shelter for the homeless called the Oliver Gospel Mission, located downtown.

“I felt proud that I provided clothing for people that needed them,” Sophomore Christopher Phillips said.

It was a service learning project for the JROTC students that started 4 years ago.

“It was good cause…and was very helpful for people growing up without the supplies they need,” Sophomore Michael Mack said.

Also the cadets had to do research, and they found out that Richland County has the highest number of homeless people than any other county in South Carolina.

“It was a good thing for community service,” Sophomore Jermale Mathews said.
