Throughout the month of October, we are collecting new or gently used winter hats, mittens, gloves, coats, snow pants, and boots for the children at Central Park Elementary School. We are especially in need of waterproof gloves and warm hats this year.
Many of the families at Central Park Elementary have recently moved here from warmer climates and need to outfit their entire family for winter. We hope to help ease this burden for them and have each child dressed warmly for the cold, Minnesota winter.
If you'd like to participate but don't have any items in your house to give, you can purchase some on your own or give financially by clicking here and choosing "Warm and Wooly Winter Wear Rally" from the drop-down menu. Our professional shoppers will use the money given to buy the items that are most needed.
