The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce seeks local businesses and organizations - small, medium and large - to serve as collection points for our annual winter outerwear campaign.
The 2012 campaign begins Monday, November 12 and concludes Friday, December 14. Businesses to serve as donation drop-off points are needed across the Greater Springfield area. This year collected items will be distributed to area residents through ECHO - Ecumenical Community Helping Others.
Each participating location will receive a collection box, signage, and assigned an ECHO volunteer to pick-up the collected items as boxes fill. Boxes should be placed where customers and or employees can conveniently place donations.
If your company or organization would like to serve as a collection point please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 19
For purposes of this campaign, collection locations will be accepting winter outerwear including new winter hats, scarves and gloves for all ages, new children's coats, and gently-used blankets.
