2015 Annual Coat Drive
Annual Rotary Sunrise Winter Clothing Drive Beings!
Dates: November 2, 2015 - December 12, 2015
The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise announces the start of its annual coat drive to benefit those in need of warm winter clothing. Rotary volunteers are placing boxes in the community to receive donations of coats, jackets, hats, gloves, scarves and mittens. All sizes, infant through adult, are accepted, although the need is great for men’s and women’s size XL, 2XL and 3XL.
Benefiting organizations for the 2015 Winter Clothing Drive are Hesed House, DuPage PADS and Sharing Connections - three local organizations that serve those in need.
The mission of Rotary is “Service Above Self”, and we are proud to be a partner with Hesed House, DuPage PADS, Sharing Connections, Naperville Consolidated Unit School District 203 and Indian Prairie School District 204 in delivering warm clothing to those in our area who are in need in the upcoming winter season.
This year, in collaboration with the Downtown Naperville Alliance, select downtown businesses will place collection boxes on Monday, November 2 through Saturday, December 12th. By partnering with Sunrise Rotary, the Downtown Naperville Alliance makes it easy for residents to donate slightly used winter clothing while downtown shopping for the holidays.
