Explore La Crosse serving as collection site for Travel Wisconsin’s annual charity drive

Explore La Crosse is inviting residents to drop off new or gently used coats, sweaters, hats, mittens and other warm clothing items as part of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s “Big Bundle Up” campaign. The Big Bundle Up is a statewide collection program running Nov. 28, 2017 – Jan. 2, 2018.

This is the seventh year of the Big Bundle Up. To date, the program has collected more than 103,400 warm winter items to help families in need. In addition to Explore La Crosse, other collection sites, including Travel Wisconsin Welcome Centers, are located throughout the state.

All items donated at this location will be given to Family and Children’s Center.
