The Superior-Douglas County Visitors Bureau is inviting residents to drop off new or gently used coats, sweaters, hats, mittens and other warm clothing items at the Superior-Douglas County Welcome Center as part of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s “The Big Bundle Up” campaign. “The Big Bundle Up” is a statewide collection program running now through Jan. 2, 2015.
This is the fourth year of the program. To date, the program has collected more than 32,000 winter items to help warm up families in need. In addition to the Superior-Douglas County Welcome Center, other collection sites, including the state’s other Travel Wisconsin Welcome Centers, are located throughout the state. Visit TravelWisconsin.com for a full listing of donation sites.
With the spirit of the holiday season upon us, donating winter items is the perfect way to give to Wisconsin families in need. A box will be located in the Superior-Douglas County Welcome Center inside of the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center in Superior for donors to drop off warm clothing items. All items donated at this location will be given to Harbor House Crisis Shelters in Superior. For more information about why the Superior-Douglas County Visitors Bureau is participating in “The Big Bundle Up,” please contact Director of Marketing and Social Media Brittany Berrens. She can be reached by email HERE, or by phone at 715-394-7716.
