Visit Kenosha’s two Visitor Information Centers are once again serving as collection sites for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s annual charity drive. The public is invited 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. All donations, accepted now through January 7 at our two centers, will stay in the community and be distributed to those in need through ELCA Outreach Center.

The I-94 Visitor Information Center is located at the southeast corner of I-94 and Hwy. 165, at 10519 - 120th Ave. This time of year, it’s staffed by Visit Kenosha Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The organization also staffs a Visitor Information Center at the location of its administrative office at 600 52nd Street, Suite 140. It’s open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

In addition to Visit Kenosha’s two locations, other collection sites are located throughout the state. This is the eleventh year of the Wisconsin Big Bundle Up. To date, the program has collected nearly 200,000 warm winter items to help families in need. Since the charity drive started, Visit Kenosha has collected more than 11,200 items.
