20th Annual Rotary Sunrise Winter Clothing Drive Beings!

The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise announces the start of its 20th annual clothing 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 XXXL adult, are accepted.

The annual coat drive kicks off on November 16th at the club’s weekly breakfast meeting at the Naperville Country Club and runs through Friday, December 14, 2018.

“The mission of Rotary is “Service Above Self”, and we are proud to partner with Hesed House, DuPage PADS and Sharing Connections to deliver warm clothing to those in our area who are in need in the upcoming winter season. “The Naperville community has always been very generous, and we look forward to another successful Winter Clothing Drive,” said Jeanette Oakeshott, Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise President.

As the need grows, the Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise continues to attract new collection partners. This year, in collaboration with the Naperville Fire Department collection boxes will be placed in all Naperville Fire Stations. Additional locations include Andersons Bookshop in Naperville, Casey’s Fine Foods, Fair Oaks Ford, DuPage Universalist Unitarian Church, Dutchman Heating, Kroehler YMCA, Naper Settlement, Naperville Park District facilities, Naperville Bank & Trust in Downtown Naperville and Fort Hill, the Views of Naperville and the offices of Coldwell Banker Naperville Boulevard, Naperville Clinical Associates, Newman Architecture, and Wells Fargo Advisors.

As you prepare for the winter months, please consider donating warm clothing that you will no longer use to the Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise Winter Clothing Drive. For further information, visit www.napervillesunrise.org.
