Community Service/Migrant Support

October 8, 2023

The Old Town Triangle Association is continuing to work to support Migrants and others in need. Working with Ascension Church at LaSalle and Elm, we are providing new and lightly worn winter clothing that is available at their “free store” for those in need. They can always use more help. 

An Ad-Hoc Committee is helping to find ways that Old Town neighbors can best assist those in need. Other options are being brought to our attention and we will be reaching out for more help soon. There are a number of groups that are located very near to the Triangle and we want to make sure that our efforts will make a difference.

The Community Service Committee has not forgotten our local public servants who go above and beyond for us every day. A lunch for the 18th District Police officers was held on November 17th before the start of the holiday season, where officers take on extra shifts to manage high-profile events. We also dropped off cookies to both of our local Fire Stations to acknowledge the loss of their colleague and friend, Drew Price. 

Reach out to the Committee at service@oldtowntriangle.com to assist in any of these activities. 

We need your continued support for some needs that have been identified.

  • Old suitcaseswheeled cases are easier for everyone.
  • There is a need for coats, boots and shoes. Not necessarily new but in decent shape. No dress shoes or heels. Athletic shoes, comfortable shoes, warm boots – for adults and children. Socks and underwear must be new but are also needed.
  • Men will wear jeans or sweats but no dress pants. 
  • Women also prefer athletic type clothing (leggings, sweats, etc.). No blouses, skirts or dresses.
  • Small, stuffed animals (please no large items).
  • Pots & pans and other items for those who are finding shelter are also appreciated.

If you are unable to donate items but would still like to contribute, you can make a donation by clicking here.

Laundry costs are high – we are attempting to offer cleaning of clothing and bedding to the migrants. One family for one week (about 45 lbs.- everything has been wet lately) costs about $40. Your donation of $20 or more in the Laundry section will help us to meet these needs. We can still use donations to help pay for the laundry services that were provided.

Note: donations to the Old Town Triangle Association are tax-deductible to the amount allowed by law (OTTA is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization).

Thank you – in advance for your assistance. Please contact the committee at service@oldtowntriangle.com for any additional information.
