Visit Rome participating in Big Bundle Up
For the City Times
TOWN OF ROME – Visit Rome is inviting community residents to drop off new or gently used coats, sweaters, hats, mittens, and other warm clothing items for both adults and children, as part of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s “Big Bundle Up” campaign.
The Big Bundle Up is a statewide collection program running Oct. 28 – Nov. 25.
This is the ninth year for the program, which has collected 155,893 warm winter items to help families in need.
This will be Visit Rome’s first year participating in this statewide campaign. In addition to Visit Rome, other collection sites, including Travel Wisconsin Welcome Centers, are located throughout the state. Visit TravelWisconsin.com for a full listing of donation sites.
A box will be located at the Visit Rome office, 1154 Apache Ave, Nekoosa, for donations. All items will be given to local charities.
