Brian Urlacher to Chair Police Athletic League's Clothes for Kids Campaign
Oak Brook, IL.- The Illinois State Crime Commission/ Police Athletic League of Illinois is most pleased to announce that Brian Urlacher has agreed to be the Honorary Chairman of our "Clothes for Kids" drive. Our goal is to obtain and distribute 5400 coats for disadvantaged school children.
We are seeking donations of coats and clothing, as well as funds to purchase said items. Our organization has for decades been a federally tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization (see attached). One hundred percent of every dollar donated will be spent on the kids. There are no administrative expenses - it all goes to those who need a helping hand.
We are fully aware that we are in tough financial times, but we also know it impacts even more on those less fortunate.
Distribution will take place in Cook, Will, Kane and DuPage Counties during the holidays. Please help this worthy cause.
