Third Annual Children's Coat Drive

We are doing our part to help children stay warm during the harsh Chicagoland winters. No child should be without a winter coat. CBA Sisterhood is collecting new and gently used Children’s Winter Coats, snow-pants, hats, mittens and scarves. Please help us by donating items that you can pass along. They can be dropped off at the synagogue to the blue box in the lobby throughout September and October. E-mail Jodi at Jodi.Weinberg@marriott.com with any questions. All donations will be given to a local school in the area. Thank you for your assistance!

Location:
1370 Abbott Court
