College of DuPage faculty, staff and students will collect and donate much-needed items to more than 20 community agencies this winter through the annual "Up to S.N.O.W. Good" initiative.

Organized by "COD Cares," the initiative asks participants to "Serve the Needs of Others in Winter," by adopting a partner agency or granting holiday wishes for families and children in need.

Volunteers will hand-deliver items later this month and close the college's holiday giving celebration at the "Up to S.N.O.W. Good" "It's a Wrap" party on Friday, Dec. 6.
