As part of a wider initiative partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs across the country, USAgain's local division donated 120 lbs of winter apparel – including coats, gloves and hats – to the Boys & Girls Club in Elgin, IL. USAgain Chicago division manager Doug McCreight visited with some members of the club, displaying the coats on a table from which the kids and/or their parents could choose an item to take home.
USAgain donated all of its gently used outerwear collected in their bins to Boys and Girls Clubs during the week of December 10, 2012. Donations will remain in the communities where they are collected, meaning a jacket donated in the Chicago area will be distributed to a child or family in need in Chicago.
The campaign is running in 10 cities where USAgain warehouse divisions are located: Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York, Pennsylvania, St. Louis, San Francisco, and Seattle.
