Miller-Motte Technical CollegeClarksville, TN – The AMT (American Medical Technologist) Club at Miller-Motte Technical College in Clarksville, TN is asking the Clarksville community to help them keep people warm this winter.  Organizations feed the homeless and others provide warm coats, but frostbite affects the hands and ears.

Members are from the medical assisting, medical office assisting, healthcare assisting and healthcare technology programs. The AMT club assists members with information in their field as well as continuing education opportunities once they graduate.

LaTonja Glaspy is the president of the AMT club at Miller-Motte. She wanted to do something with the club members this winter to give back to others. She also wanted the community to be able to be involved and be able increase the donations by opening the event to the public.

“In this economy, it could be you that becomes homeless with the loss of your job. Some people have no family to turn to, that is where we can help. Your caring heart shows with the gift of giving and when I see the homeless you don’t know how they became homeless, but you can do something to help. Even the little things like warm hats and gloves will help. I gave my coat to a homeless man once, and when I saw him again he was wearing it and would smile at me,” said Glaspy.

The AMT club at Miller-Motte is asking for your donations of new hats and gloves to keep those who are homeless warm this winter. All sizes are welcome as there are homeless children, as well. Please mark your donations for an adult or child.
