Temple students put on their jackets and braved the cold weather to raise money for kids at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
On Tuesday at the O’Connor Plaza, HootaThon members hosted their second Pop-Up Thrift Store. They had dozens of boxes filled with donated clothes that students could look through on their way to classes. All of the items come from generous Temple students, HootaThon members, and others throughout the community.
Although the next HootaThon dance marathon isn’t until February 2019, they hope events like these will help break the school’s record of $465,000 dollars last year.
The thrift shop was from noon until 4 PM and all clothing items could be paid for using cash, Venmo, and credit cards. The organization will be having more fundraisers next semester to raise money for the children.
