The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Veteran’s Assistance Commission, several local law enforcement agencies and many local high schools to collect coats and outerwear for the Lake County Law Enforcement Veteran's Coat Drive. The collection period begins Wednesday, September 5 and ends on Wednesday, November 7.
Sheriff Mark Curran stated, "I'd like to thank Metro Self Storage in Lake Bluff for donating the collection boxes and the local law enforcement agencies and partner high schools for continuing this fine tradition of collecting outerwear for veterans and their families. There is no greater gift than giving."
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office and our law enforcement partners invite you to join us in bringing gently used coats, gloves, hats, socks and scarves to one of the following locations:
Donated items will be delivered to the Midwest Veterans Closet located at 2323 Green Bay Road in North Chicago, IL. Below is a photo of Kimberley from Metro Self Storage and Deputy Maria Nava loading donated boxes for distribution to partners.
