To celebrate the holiday spirit of giving, Blue Moon Coffeehouse (1742 W. 99th St.), My Sister’s Knits (9907 Walden Pkwy.) and The Blossom Boys (9911 Walden Pkwy.) are accepting donations of warm clothes, personal items, books, magazine subscriptions, CDs/DVDs, phone cards, gift cards, etc., from now through December 12th for wounded soldiers and their families.
The gifts will be taken to local VA hospitals (Jesse Brown, Hines, Manteno, Great Lakes, etc.) before Christmas by the ministers and members of St. Joseph/St. Aidan Episcopal Church in Blue Island. Please make sure the gifts are wrapped and have a tag that says whether the gift is for a man, woman or child. These should be the kinds of gifts that you would give to your own loved ones at the holiday.
Feel free to drop off your gifts at Blue Moon, My Sister's Knits or The Blossom Boys, or call Caroline Mooney (773-840-3618) or Carol Oprondek (773-238-4555) with any questions or to arrange drop off.
