Cornell Collects Clothing for Portland Homeless

As if on cue, Portland had its first snowy day in more than year as the hats, scarves, gloves, warm socks, jackets, and long underwear were delivered to the non-profit.

In all, there more than 600 pairs of socks, 10 warm jackets, 50 pair of underwear, 20 long johns and much more given by Cornell Pump employees.
