MILWAUKEE- County Supervisor Sequanna Taylor and Dream Team United MKE have come together to coordinate a winter gear drive with a food giveaway.

Supervisor Taylor will be accepting donations in person on December 14th at 1862 W. Fond du Lac Ave. from 6:30pm until 7:30pm, while hosting a livestream of the event via Facebook Live. Hot chocolate and cookies will be available for all.

“During our Thanksgiving coat drive we realized the Milwaukee community currently has a great need for all types of winter clothing, not just coats,” said Taylor. “We provided 150 coats and it was nowhere near enough. Now more than ever we need to come together to meet these needs since Covid-19 has changed shelter guidelines and many places are limited in capacity”.

New winter coats in all sizes, along with hats, scarves, gloves, and other warm weather gear is welcome.

All donated materials will be distributed to those in need on December 20th from 2pm to 4pm at 1862 W. Fond du Lac Ave. Free food and resources will be available at the drive while supplies last.

The winter gear drive is running from now until this Thursday, December 17th.

Donations are accepted at the Parklawn Assembly of God, 3725 N. Sherman Blvd. (Monday – Thursday, 10am – 3pm); Rise and Grind inside the Sherman Phoenix at 3536 W. Fond du Lac Ave. (Monday – Thursday, 7am – 3pm); Gentle Hands, 6815 W. Capitol Dr. (Monday – Thursday, 8:30am – 4pm), and KGSCT,  1862 W. Fond du Lac Ave. (Monday – Thursday, 9am – 4:45pm)

Additional questions about the drive and donation locations can be directed to dreamteammke@gmail.com.
