2,020 participate in area used clothing drive
From press release
LOVES PARK, Ill.—Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful’s (KNIB) success continues this month with 2,020 area residents dropping off clothing and other soft goods at the Fall Clothing Drive at all Hilander Food Stores and Forest Hills Lodge Saturday, Oct. 10.
KNIB Executive Director Lori Gummow said: “This event is the perfect opportunity to help those in need by finding a new home for outgrown school clothes and other items that no longer fit or are needed. With the current economic conditions, secondhand clothing in good condition is in high demand.
“Our top three attended sites were the Roscoe Hilander with 425 residents, the Brynwood Hilander with 399 residents and the North Main Hilander with 334 residents,” Gummow added. “We truly appreciate the 168 volunteers who spent a chilly Saturday helping us with this very worthwhile reuse program.”
