The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise will run their annual Winter Coat Drive November 4th through December 12th, featuring the collection of new and gently-used (and laundered) coats, jackets, hats, scarves, mittens, and gloves in sizes infant through adult. If you or your kids have a winter coat, jacket or winter gear that you no longer use, consider donating them to this worthy cause. Currently, the greatest anticipated need remains for adult XL, 2XL, and 3XL in both men’s and women’s styles.
According to the 2017 Farmers’ Almanac, Winter Is Coming! It’s predicated to be an exceptionally cold winter here in the Midwest. By making a donation of warm winter gear for the coat drive, you will be helping Sharing Connections, Hesed House, and Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans -- all shelters for individuals and families in need, in and around Naperville.
The shelters have teamed up with the Downtown Naperville Alliance and several downtown businesses to make it easy for residents to drop off donations in collection boxes while shopping this holiday season. So far, over 40 collection boxes have been set up at these establishments:
- Fry YMCA (95th Street)
- Fair Oaks Ford
- Kroehler YMCA (Washington Street)
- Casey’s Fine Foods
- School of Performing Arts
- Dr. Joe Haselhorst
- Ellman’s Music Center
- Anderson’s Bookstore
- Russell’s Dry Cleaners
