RACINE — The Downtown Racine Corporation (DRC) is currently accepting donations for its annual warm accessories drive in conjunction with the Holiday Parade and Tree-Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 12.

Community members are asked to bring warm accessory donations for those in need. Donating is a wonderful way to help others experience the warmth and magic of the season.

Donations being accepted

Items such as scarves, gloves, mittens, hats, neck warmers, and more will be accepted. Donations of all sizes are encouraged.

Items can be dropped off at Monument Square anytime from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm on the parade day. For a schedule of events on the day of the parade, read more on our website.

“As the weather gets colder, we must do our part as a community to help the less fortunate,” says DRC.

Once donated, these items will be distributed to local charities by the Downtown Racine Corporation.
