Our bitter cold winter months can be harsh, even downright dangerous. Imagine being a young child without proper clothing. Well you and I have an opportunity to make sure that doesn’t happen. The 3rd annual winter clothing drive is underway and it couldn’t come at a better time.

Winter coats, jackets, hats and more were dropped off at three different locations for donates on Thursday. The donations were dropped off at Bonnie J Jacobson Farmers Insurance Agency, Life 97.3, and DLH Clothing.

“Some people can’t even afford the one jacket. I’ve been involved in the kid’s school for many years and there are kids that come to school in t-shirts and sweatshirts. So this might be there first jacket, this might be the only jacket that they have. Some kids wouldn’t have been able to get the resources they need without it,” said Nicole DuMars, Director of Business and Donor Advancement.

If you would, you can donate any used and good conditioned winter clothing to places like Duluth Harbor Rescue, chum and the Damiano Center.
