The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise will host its annual Winter Coat Drive from Nov. 3 through Dec. 4, kicking off the collection during the club’s weekly breakfast meeting at Naperville Country Club this Friday.


Anderson’s Bookstore at 123 W. Jefferson Ave. is among members of the Downtown Naperville Alliance collecting warm winter outerwear.

Rotary volunteers are placing boxes throughout the community to receive donations of gently-used clean coats, jackets, hats, gloves, scarves and mittens. All sizes, infant through XXXL adult, are accepted. New or never-worn clothing is welcome, too.

The 2017 Winter Clothing Drive will benefit Hesed House, DuPage Pads and Sharing Connections, three local organizations that serve individuals in need.

Annual Rotary Sunrise Winter Clothing Drive begins!

“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,” said Justin Klestinski, Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise President. “The Naperville community has always been very generous, and we look forward to another successful Winter Clothing Drive.”

Look for collection boxes throughout downtown Naperville

As the need grows, the Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise continues to attract new collection partners. This year, in collaboration with the Downtown Naperville Alliance, select downtown businesses will place collection boxes through downtown Naperville. 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.

Find locations throughout Naperville, too

Additional locations include Casey’s Fine Foods, Fair Oaks Ford, Naperville Bank & Trust, Northwestern Mutual Financial in Aurora, The School of Performing Arts, Wells Fargo Advisors, Naper Settlement and Dutchman Heating. In addition, collection boxes will be at all ten Naperville Fire Stations.

Thanks to all for donating warm clothing no longer used to the Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise Winter Coat Drive. For more information, visit www.napervillesunrise.org.
