The team at VISIT Lake Geneva, the Visitor & Convention Bureau and Chamber of Commerce for the Lake Geneva, Wis., area, announced today it will serve as the local drop-off for The Big Bundle Up, an annual statewide campaign that collects new and gently used winter clothing items for donation back to the local community. This year’s recipient of the donated items is the Walworth County Food Pantry & Diaper Bank, whose mission is to provide food and supplies in time of crisis. The organization serves an average of 400 families per month thanks to donations from the community and the work of their all-volunteer staff.
Residents are invited to drop off new and gently used coats, sweaters, hats, mittens, gloves and other warm clothing items between now and Nov. 25 at the Visitor Information Center, 201 Wrigley Drive, Lake Geneva. The Visitor Center is open seven days a week, with Monday through Friday hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For questions, contact VISIT Lake Geneva at 262.248.1000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
