A children's boot drive to benefit the kids at HALO will be held in Caledonia by the Cousins Subs at 5131 Douglas Ave. Donations of new or gently used children’s boots will be accepted from Saturday, Oct. 24, through Saturday, Nov. 14, during business hours. Anyone donating a pair of boots will receive a coupon for a free sub (with the purchase of another) and a special holiday catering offer.
HALO needs boots in children’s sizes 6-13 and 1-5 and hopes to collect four pairs of boots in each size. Boots are needed for both boys and girls, and HALO suggests that people who intend to donate new boots purchase “gender-neutral” colors and styles.
“We love being part of the Caledonia community and, as colder weather approaches, we wanted to do something to give back,” said Mary Jo Lorentz, Cousins' co-owner with her husband, Norm. “HALO is a wonderful organization that does so much for people in need in Racine County. We hope everyone will join us in giving to this important effort to help local children.”
