Help Us Collect Coats, Hats, Gloves, and Scarves, And Let’s Share The Warmth
We’ve teamed up with the Douglas Park Advisory Council for Let’s Share The Warmth Coat Drive and are now accepting new and gently used coats for children and adults as well as gloves, hats, and scarves. Douglas Park Advisory Council will distribute the coats to the general public in the North Lawndale community on Tuesday, December 19, 2017, at 3:00 pm at Douglas Park Cultural Center.
