We have officially kicked off our 3rd annual coat drive!
NWACC Human Resources will once again be partnering with the CARE Community Center of Benton County to collect coats for those in need.
We have put drop boxes in many buildings across campus to collect your donations of all sizes of new and gently used coats and jackets. The weather is (FINALLY!) starting to get chilly, and as you go through your closets and find those coats that don’t fit or that you don’t want anymore, or if you’re out shopping and find a great sale, please consider giving the gift of warmth to Benton County residents in need.
If you have any questions, please call Robin Roitz at 619-4131 or Heather Worley at 619-4296.
Our team in Workforce Development has large boxes that they are using to collect items.
This year Workforce Development is collecting items and donating to two organizations:
- Home Instead Senior Care – We will be buying gifts for senior citizens who receive home health care. These individuals generally live alone and have unmet needs. Jerod Bradshaw will be getting a list of items requested for a couple of these folks from the Senior Angel Tree. Over the next several weeks, we will purchase and wrap these items. If anyone would like to participate through Workforce, they are more than welcome! If you would like a name from the Senior Angel Tree, Jerod Bradshaw (479.986.6608) has information that would help.
- “A Christmas to Remember” is an annual event that Grace Baptist Church in Rogers, Arkansas sponsors for children. They, through our donations and gifts, create a “shopping mall” for children in the 1st – 6thgrade. Children then get to “shop” for Christmas gifts and wrap them for their families while they enjoy snacks and Christmas music in the process. If anyone would like to donate to this worthy cause, feel free to bring your donations to Workforce Development in the Shewmaker Center for Workforce Technologies building and we will take them to Grace Baptist Church. (Open the attached for information).
Just let us know if anyone would like to participate and how we can help make that happen! Our deadline to drop off gifts, etc. is December 13, 2017.

Mental health is a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional – it’s a checkup from your neck up. To take a screening, OPEN THIS LINK or go to NWACC/Campus and Community Resources. Screenings do not provide a diagnosis of any medical condition. The information provided by the screenings do not substitute for a full evaluation by a health professional.
