SPOONER, WI -- Washburn County Tourism Association is pleased to announce another year of collecting warm winter clothing items to help families throughout Washburn County.
This year’s campaign will officially be called Bundle Up WashCo – a new name but still the same great cause! Donations will be collected and handed out from November 23rd through December 22nd this year. And, new this year are multiple drop off locations including the Washburn County Visitor Center, The Dock Coffee, Masterjohn Realty Office, and Journeys at Heartwood near the Minong area. Items donated can be new or gently used and there is a need of anything from jackets to mittens in all sizes.
In 2022 the Big Bundle Up, Washburn County Tourism Associations was able to collect nearly 300 items that were given to Lakeland Family Resource Center, Washburn County Food Pantry in Spooner, Birchwood Food Pantry, and COMFORTS in Minong to distribute to families of all ages. The goal is to collect just as many items, if not more, to be able to hand out to those organizations again!
If you have any questions or want to get involved with Bundle Up WashCo, questions can be directed to Kaitlin Hanson, Executive Director at 715-635-9696 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
