Being part of a community means looking out for those in need. That’s why the Old Town Merchants and Residents Association holds its Old Town Holiday Drive every year. The event, happening now until December 18, seeks to help local charities gain the goods they need to provide for the more vulnerable members in the area. It’s a great way for residents of our apartments in Chicago to really get involved in supporting the community.
WHO RECEIVES HELP
The Old Town Holiday Drive encourages local citizens to donate items that go to help out local Chicago charities. They don’t want people living right alongside us to be forgotten and neglected during the holiday season.
CHARITIES PROVIDED FOR
Mercy Home for Boys and Girls
They’re always in need of items like food and various toiletries. It also helps to take some time to go through any clothing in your home you no longer use. Gather any items still in good condition and drop them off at one of the local businesses volunteering as a drop-off location.
There’s a particular need for any winter clothing that can be spared. Visit the Old Town Holiday Drive website to find a drop-off location near you.
WHY YOU SHOULD CONTRIBUTE
You receive the satisfaction of knowing that those needing help were not left wanting during the holiday season. When you and other community members of Cobbler Square Lofts in Chicago give more, it increases the number of people that the Old Town Holiday Drive gets to help out.
Contributors also earn free admission to Zanies, one of the local comedy clubs. You and any friends that go with you get to enjoy some well-deserved laughs after performing a good deed.
BRIGHTEN UP THE SEASON
It doesn’t take much to make the holidays better for someone. A few moments out of your day presents the opportunity to make a world of difference to someone. This offers you a way to truly embrace the giving spirit of the holiday season.
We always encourage our Cobbler Square Lofts to get involved in the local area. Come be part of it by contacting us today. Get a taste of Chicago’s Old Town community experience!
