Consider this: Can you imagine facing winter without a warm coat, or gloves, or a hat?
Unfortunately, this is reality for many of our neighbor kids in The Woodlands (west of 91st & Brown Deer Road).
Part of our mission at the Granville Business Improvement District is to engage with and improve the community around us ... which is why we're asking member businesses to collect children's winter clothing to be donated to kids in need at The Woodlands.
Coats, boots, scarves, hats, gloves, mittens ... we need 'em all. New or gently used - both are fine. If you hold a collection drive, we'll pick up donations by Dec. 7. Contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a day and time.
Most of us take warm winter clothing for granted. Not everyone can, though. Working together, we can make a huge difference in children's lives with just these simple items. It's OK to not like winter in Wisconsin; let's make sure these kids don't have to fear it, as well.
