Winger urges donations to help Hurricane Harvey victims
Residents of Bloomingdale are being asked to take part in Hurricane Harvey relief efforts via the Bloomingdale Cares program, according to Rep. Christine Winger's (R-Wood Dale) website.
A large assortment of donations are welcome, from kitchen and bathroom supplies to personal hygiene and baby items. Donations will be accepted through Sept. 18 at the former JC Penney store in Stratford Square Mall in Bloomingdale.
"As we watched the devastation in Houston unfold, we’ve tried to figure out how to harness the power of our own community to be a positive force for change and today we’re asking for your help," Winger wrote. "Whether it’s just a few items or a whole pallet of supplies, we welcome individuals and fellow businesses in our community to drop off whatever you can manage."
Donations are accepted Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 pm, and on Saturdays from noon to 7 p.m.
