Our Next Event -
7th Annual Coat the Kid Drive – Ongoing October through early December
Every year so many children in and around our community will not have an adequate winter coat to keep them warm (perhaps for some not at all). In the midst of these tough economic times we are certain there will be more children that will fall into this category. We also recognize that during these tough times it is also increasingly hard to dig into your pocket and give to causes outside of your own home.
While that statement rings true for so many of us this year, we are still considered among the richest people in the world. That’?s why the Bolingbrook Lions and Leos have decided to continue with this much needed winter coat drive. After all was said and done your collective efforts produced nearly 400 winter coats that were distributed to local churches, schools and community organizations last year.
Starting October 20th through December(Coats due back to the Lions by December 1st or sooner) we will be collecting kids winter coats (new or very gently used) to be distributed to local schools, churches and shelters.
