Public responds to ‘Big Bundle Up’

The Wade House Historic Site in Greenbush collected warm winter items for those in need across Wisconsin as part of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism’s “Big Bundle Up” charity campaign from mid- November through Jan. 4.

Sheboygan and Fond du Lac county residents dropped off 260 items, including new and gently-used coats, sweaters, hats, mittens and other warm clothing during that time.

Among the donated items was an assortment of hand-knit winter gear from a donor in Plymouth, who knit brightly-colored hats, scarves and mittens for the campaign.

The 76 items were delivered with a not that read, “It gives me great pleasure to knit and donate caps and mittens for those who can really use them! Merry Christmas!”

Another resident, Debbi Sippel, was also inspired to help, as she and her colleagues in the employee benefits section of the Human Resources Department at the Kohler Co. collected and donated more than 50 items to the campaign. That included several coats for women and children, many sets of warm gloves, multiple scarves and numerous winter hats.

All winter gear donated at the Wade House has been given to Safe Harbor and Bridgeway House in Sheboygan, and Solutions Center and Support Services in Fond du Lac.

 Correction 

The Plymouth School Board story in the Jan. 23 issue of The Review incorrectly stated that the Community Education and Recreation Department had created 15 new classes during the 2012-13 school year. The actual number was 50 new classes.
