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.

With the spirit of the holiday season upon us, donating winter items is the perfect way to give to families in need across the state. A box will be located at Explore La Crosse in Riverside Park AND the WI Welcome Center at Rest Area 31 on French Island, La Crosse for donors to drop off warm clothing items. All items donated at this location will be given to Family and Children’s Center.
