La Crosse, Wis. (WXOW) – The arrival of the cold weather means the need for winter clothes for the needy.
The Downtown Rotary Club has put out a call for gently used socks, sweatshirts or gloves. It’s all part of its second annual Warm Feet, Warm Hearts campaign.
All donations will go to Catholic Charities.
Rotarians say they wanted to help out more at this time of the year and decided warm clothes are always needed.
“…and it’s easy to do. I mean we weren’t asking for even new things, but no people have purchased new,” Sheila Wieser said. “So many people have sweatshirts they haven’t worn for years and they can give it and feel good about it.”
The campaign ends on Thursday, November 15. That day, people can drop off their donations at the Rotary meeting at the Radisson Center next to the La Crosse Center between 11:30 and 1 p.m.
The list of accepted items include:
Financial contributions are also welcome. Please make checks payable to Catholic Charities.
