Winter Clothes Drive

A child receives a winter coat during the Warm Winter Drive.

Many of our Capuchin Community Services’ guests are not sufficiently dressed to ward off the cold of Wisconsin’s cold winters. And many of our children stand on the bus stop without hats and mittens. Can you help us with our Warm Winter Drive? Any of the following items will be well-used and we appreciate new or gently used donations as well.

  • Warm blankets for our homeless guests
  • Warm jackets–all sizes. Large sizes are particularly needed
  • Mittens, scarves, hats, gloves for children, men and women
