LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Partners in the Washburn neighborhood brought a bit of warm holiday cheer to La Crosse this month with a winter clothing drive.

The drive — which ran from Dec. 4-18 — was a partnership with La Crosse Area Family Collaborative, the System of Care program, La Crosse Police Department Washburn Neighborhood resource officers and Mayo Clinic Health System.  Donations included coats, hats, gloves, snow pants, thermals, boots and socks.

These items will be donated to those in need by the La Crosse Police resource officers, nearby schools, and social workers supporting the Washburn neighborhood.
