Colonel Closet was created to fill the needs for necessities of life for students following Hurricane Ida. The mission of Colonel Closet is to reduce the environmental impact of wasted goods by providing Nicholls students, faculty, and staff in need with access to donated necessities such as clothing, household items, small furniture, and school supplies, all at no cost! The project was created through the Department of Student Affairs after the campus felt the effects of not only natural disasters but the COVID pandemic. They always accept donations from not only students, staff, and faculty, but also community members. Please contact (985.493.2529) for information on how to provide a financial contribution.
