Keep Chicago Warm with Our ZooLights Coat Drive

As you get ready for ZooLights Presented by ComEd and Charter One, don’t forget to spread the warmth! We’re collecting new and gently used winter clothing at Park Place Café for our ZooLights Coat Drive.

This week we distributed our first items to Cornerstone Community Outreach and Streetwise. Thanks to everyone who donated 70 coats as well as an assortment of gloves, hats, scarves, shirts, sweaters, pants and shoes. Special thanks to the City Colleges of Chicago, who distributed more than 50 coats from their own coat drive through Lincoln Park Zoo.

Cornerstone Community Outreach received 40 coats and other winter items from the ZooLights Coat Drive.
