WARMING UP FOR COMMUNITY DONATIONS

WARMING UP FOR COMMUNITY DONATIONS

An average of 10 percent of Wisconsin residents live in poverty, according to the U.S. Census Bureau and with our winter weather coming faster than we might care to admit, it’s time to think about bundling up again.

HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals are collecting winter coats and blankets September 1 until September 30.


All donations must be clean and in wearable condition.  Items needed this year include:
– Great need for children and infant size coats, hats, mittens, scarves and boots
– Great need for adult coats, sizes XL, XXL and XXXL
– Winter coats and snowsuits
– Adult size hats, mittens, scarves and boots
– Blankets for infants, children, youth and adults

The drop-off site at Sacred Heart Hospital (900 West Clairemont Ave.) is inside the hospital’s main entrance near the information desk. The drop-off site at St. Joseph’s Hospital (2661 County Hwy I) is also inside the hospital’s main entrance near the information desk.
