IPPC Winter Coat & Boot Drive


The Indian Prairie Parents’ Council is once again hosting their annual winter coat drive to benefit District 204 students and families in need. This program gathers new and gently used clean winter coats and accessories (including boots, snow pants, hats, scarves and mittens) that will be offered at no cost to families in need. Students and parents are encouraged to bring their gently used or new donated items to their school between September 11 - 22. Collection boxes will be available in the entrance of each school. All district families are welcome to browse and select winter items for themselves or someone in need on Friday September 29 from 4 - 6  PM at McCarty Elementary in the gymnasium, please enter through Door #1. If you have questions about the coat drive, please contact IPPC 1st Vice President and Unity Chair, Robin Schmidt at
