Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

November Warm Up: Bank Mutual Coat Drive

If you missed donating to Condella’s Coats for Kids, or any other organized coat donation drive, don’t panic!  But, don’t delay either!

For the second year, Bank Mutual is taking coat donations to benefit the residents of Bethany Apartments, at both of their Racine branches: 3039 S.Green Bay Road (near Regency Mall) and 5133 Douglas Avenue, near K-mart and Pick N Save on the north side.  Bethany Apartments is a battered women’s and children’s center. Please drop your coats off before the end of this week! Bethany Apartment’s website is

Additionally, Downtown Racine merchants are conducting a Toy Drive that is being kicked off this Friday evening, December 3rd, in conjunction with Downtown Racine First Friday event.  Merchants are accepting donations of new and gently used toys and books for children with unfair life challenges.

Collections will then continue through Downtown’s Holiday Open House on December 11th.  Donated toys and books can be dropped off at Copacetic, 409 Main Street and Molly MaGruder, 330 Main Street.

If your organization is in the midst of or has plans for a future philanthropic activity that benefits area families with children.  Don’t keep it a secret!   Use JAK to get the word out to those families that can contribute to or benefit from the cause.  We’ll help with a posting in this blog, listing a specific event in  JAK Happenings weekly e-newsletter, and/or shout outs on the  Just Add Kids Facebook and Twitter social network sites.
