Home Newsroom 243. Barrington Police & Fire Coat & Toy Drive

The bone-chilling temperatures have returned to Barrington and warm coats have, once again, become a necessity. But there are hundreds of families in the Barrington area who need a little extra help staying warm this year and Barrington’s Police and Fire Departments are taking action.

Coat and Toy Drive for Barrington Giving Day

It’s the final push to collect donations for families who really need a lift this holiday season…

Between now and next Sunday, December 5th, they’ll be collecting donations of new and gently used coats and winter apparel for children and adults at the Barrington Public Safety building. They’re also collecting new and gently used toys for children.

They’ll be turning in all of the toys and coats over to the organizers of Barrington Giving Day, which is coming up in a few weeks at Station Middle School. Families who are on the Free & Reduced Lunch program in Barrington School District 220 are invited to Giving Day each year. They receive boxes of food, warm coats, blankets, books and gifts which have been donated by people throughout the Barrington area. In 2009 Barrington Giving Day served 900 families, including 2,500 children.

You’ll find Barrington’s Public Safety Department at 400 N. Northwest Highway, just northwest of Lake Cook Road. There are boxes set up specifically for this coat & toy drive and the building is open each day from 9AM until 9PM.
