Assignment Fox Cities

Monday, Nov, 18 2013

     Fox Cities communities are on the doorstep of winter, and if forecasters
are correct, it could be colder than normal.   One agency predicted "piercing
cold" and lots of snow.
     To off-set those elements, the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau
has joined a state-wide effort to help those in need.   The effort is called
The Big Bundle Up, a winter clothing drive to collect new hats, gloves,
 and scarves to beat back the cold.
     All items will be given to the Emergency Shelter Of The Fox Valley and
the Fox Valley Warming Shelter.    You may drop-off your donated items
at the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau on West College Avenue.
     The clothing drive ends on January 3rd.
