Organization asking for clothing donations for children
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
An organization is asking for your help.
They are looking to provide underprivileged children with warm clothes for the winter.
The Springfield Urban League seeks to provide an outlet for the children to succeed.
As the temperatures drop kids in the program are in desperate need of coats and winter clothes.
That is what sparked the idea to start a winter clothing drive for these children.
"These children, represent low poverty level and a lot of these children don't have the money they need to get these items and we all know how hard it is in the winter when you're cold," Policy Counsel Chairperson Lucinda Ward said.
The group is looking to collect enough winter clothes for every child in need. They encourage people to donate no matter how big or small their donation may be.
They will be collecting these coats at the organization's Cook Street location through the end of the year through March of next year.
