We are partnering with a local group of volunteers that delivers blankets to the homeless living in Lower Wacker Drive each weekend during the winter. Items include: toiletries (tooth paste, tooth brushes, floss, deodorant, cleansing wipes (baby, lysol, or hand wipes), small packets of kleenex), non-perishable healthy snacks (granola bars, fruit strips, nuts, etc), as well as hats, gloves, and hand warmers. Blankets and lg/xl hoodies also welcome. Please give generously.
