(Jan. 10, 2012) -- The UTSA School Psychology Graduate Organization (SPGO) organized a winter clothing drive for the local nonprofit Haven for Hope. The group collected two boxes and six bags of winter clothing for donation.

The group set up collection bins across the UTSA Downtown Campus in early December and delivered the winter clothing before Christmas. The clothing drive was co-sponsored by Felicia Castro Villarreal, UTSA assistant professor of educational psychology and faculty liaison to Haven for Hope.

Haven for Hope is the largest homeless transformation campus in the United States. The organization provides housing, health services, spiritual support and programming for more than 900 homeless men, women and children. The nonprofit helps live-in and temporary residents develop skills in order to experience a better life.

SPGO is an organization involving graduate students in the UTSA College of Education and Human Development.
