Student Collects Over 5000 Articles of Clothing for Homeless

CORPUS CHRISTI - Job well done, for a local college student, who finished collecting clothes for the homeless.

Earlier this week, we told you about Brooke Ostrom.

She was gathering clothes - as part of a national contest to help the homeless. The competition wrapped up just minutes ago.

Several organizations, including the Ice Rays, stopped by Metro Ministries and donated some clothing to help her out.

Brooke collected more than 5,000 articles of clothing.

She's competing against 50 other students across the country for a shot at a $4,000 community grant or a $10,000 scholarship.

We'll find out if she won, next week.
