St. Francis House is proud to announce it will serve a larger role in this year's Keep KELOLAND Warm event.
St. Francis House will serve as the primary collection and storage site for this year's event. In addition, the St. Francis House will assist with the sorting and distribution of coats and other winter clothing items, such as hats and gloves.
Donations of new or slightly worn coats and winter clothing may be dropped off at St. Francis daily between 8 am and 8 pm between now and the end of February. St. Francis House is located at 210 N Sherman Ave.
Anyone wishing to make a financial contribution to Keep KELOLAND Warm may make an online gift by clicking the Donate button below. In the description box, please put "Keep KELOLAND Warm."
Because of COVID-19 safety concerns, the St. Francis House is still closed to the general public. With that in mind, when folks arrive at St. Francis House with their donated items, they are asked to call the St. Francis House at 605-334-3879, ext. 2. Someone from St. Francis House will then come out to the vehicle and collect the donated items.
As items are donated, St. Francis House will collaborate with other local agencies to distribute these items to those in need in the commuinty. Agency representatives are asked to complete a coat request form. Request forms are available by contacting the St. Francis House at 605-334-3879, ext. 11 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
