Schaumburg, Ill. – State Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, is asking residents to donate used winter coats at her district office, located at 15 W. Weathersfield Way in Schaumburg, to disadvantaged families in the northwest suburbs. Mussman is collecting both child- and adult-sized gently used coats throughout the month of April.
“If you took advantage of those great end of season clearance sales to get a new coat, I encourage you to think about donating any surplus winter coats while doing your spring cleaning,” Mussman said. “Drop them off at my district office in Schaumburg any time this month and they won’t be taking up space in your closet until next winter!”
Mussman is partnering with the Woodfield Area Children’s Organization, a nonprofit group dedicated to creating positive childhood memories and providing basic needs, along with educational support, for children living at or below poverty level in Chicago’s northwest suburbs. Mussman is also working with area businesses to collect and clean gently used coats.
“If possible, it would be helpful to wash any jacket that may need to be cleaned before donating,” Mussman said. “However, Corinium Cleaners of Schaumburg has stepped up to help our community by offering to clean donated coats before they are given to families in need.”
