Delnor helps collect coats for the community

By on November 17, 2009

Geneva—Cold weather is definitely here. Many of us greet autumn’s arrival with enthusiasm, looking forward to the changing season.

But a significant number of Kane County residents do not anticipate the coming season. Crisp fall air means biting cold winter air is not too far away. For an increasing number of people, that struggle doesn’t mean rummaging through drawers trying to decide which one of several sweaters to wear. It means figuring out where they can find just one coat that will protect them from the cold.

Falling temperatures mean struggling to keep warm, and the tough economy will put even more people in need. One of the ways we can all help is through Delnor’s Giving Tree program—Coats for the Community drive. The Giving Tree is committed to collecting new or gently used clean winter coats, mittens, gloves, scarves and hats in the spirit of helping others this holiday season.

Delnor is seeking donations ranging from infant to adult sizes and will be accepting donations through Dec. 31.

Making a donation is easy; simply pull to the entrance of Delnor Hospital and the valet parking staff will take your donated items and place them by the Delnor Giving Tree located in the main lobby of Delnor Hospital. Valet is available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you are among the fortunate and have an extra coat or winter clothing item that you just don’t wear any more, consider donating it to the Delnor Giving Tree—Coats for the Community drive. The coat you donate will keep someone who needs the help warm this fall and winter.

If you have any questions about Delnor’s Giving Tree and its Coats for the Community drive, contact Lynne Casey, senior marketing specialist, at (630) 208-4512.

Delnor Hospital is located at 300 Randall Road in Geneva.
