Winter Clothing Donations Requested


Even though we are in the heart of winter, some local children don’t have the proper winter attire.

The Jason Fowler Team with Compass Mortgage has been collecting winter gear for DeKalb/Sycamore schools since the fall. They would greatly appreciate new or gently used donations of gloves, hats, coats, boots, and snow pants.

They got the idea from seeing emails from their kids’ schools asking for winter clothing. Jason Fowler and his assistant, Cary Lekkas, both live in the area.

They switch off between dropping items at DeKalb and Sycamore schools. So far, they have dropped off to Lincoln Elementary (DeKalb), South Prairie Elementary (Sycamore), Little Spartans preschool program (Sycamore), and ELDC preschool (DeKalb) twice. They have received many toddler-sized items!

They hope to continue to take many more donations throughout the year, as items go on clearance at stores and as people clean out their closets!
