Due to economic changes, many individuals and children in the Grundy Center area are in need of new and gently used winter outerwear. Donations of new or gently used winter items including coats, snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens/gloves are now being accepted by Operation Threshold. Children's winter boots and coats, as well as adult sizes, up to 2X and 3X are in high demand.
Through its Share the Warmth program, last year Operation Threshold was able to provide 173 individuals with winter coats and outerwear. Grundy County residents in need of winter apparel this season, are encouraged to contact Operation Threshold to schedule an appointment. Grundy Center's office, which is located on 1606 G Avenue, is open from 8:00 AM-12PM and 12:30PM-4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
