Local law firm hosting winter clothing drive

By Northern Star Staff

Foster and Buick Law firm are holding a winter clothing drive.

The last day to donate winter clothes to the Foster and Buick Law Firm for their winter clothing drive is Friday.

Firm administrator Tracey Gallegos said the firm wants coats, hats, mittens, gloves, scarves, snow pants, boots, sweaters and sweatshirts.

“This is our second biannual; the first time was two years ago,” Gallegos said. “This year, we decided to do the winter clothing drive again and looked for a beneficiary and found Feed ’Em Soup.”

Derek Gibbs, Feed ’em Soup’s marketing and brand director, said the best part of the drive is seeing the families and children benefit from the donations.

“Foster and Buick approached us and of course we said yes,” Gibbs said. “They are our legal team so we’ve been working with them for a few years, so it was a natural fit. Seeing [the drive] come together is a very rewarding feeling.”

Donations are being accepted at the firm’s office, 2040 Aberdeen Court in Sycamore. The drive will be held at Feed ’em Soup, 122 S. First St., during non-meal hours.
