Thank you, Silver Lake. The Cold Weather Gear Drive for the Homeless was a huge success last Saturday. A steady stream of cars and people arrived to contribute many blankets, gloves, tents, sleeping bags, thermal underwear and various other items that were requested. Hundreds of items were donated, including money. Many thanks to Therese Dunphy and Jamie Norris for assisting me with the collections. While this was a big start, the drive continues through January 15, 2021. Donations can be brought to Village Hall during regular business hours. If you want to donate, but cannot make it to Village Hall, we will do pick-ups at your homes. I, for one, will be happy to come to your home to pick up your donation. So will Rebecca Brockmeyer, who has also volunteered her home as a drop-off point, too. Thanks Rebecca, what an asset to the Village you are! My goal remains that we have 100% Village participation in this drive, please do your part. Please donate, save a life.
The Homeless Thank You!
