B-B-E Operation Warm - spread the word!

The Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Clothes Closet will again be sponsoring Operation Warm for the upcoming winter. Items the public can donate include winter gear such as coats, snow pants, boots, hats, mittens, gloves and scarves. They are currently being collected through October 25 for distribution to families in need across our communities. Items should be in new or gently-used condition in sizes infant to adult.
Distribution of the items will take place on Wednesday, October 26 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Ka-De Shack in Brooten. Everyone is welcome, and everything is free. Items can be dropped off at the B-B-E Clothes Closet, located at the Brooten City Hall, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. Monetary donations are always welcome to be used for purchasing other needed items as well.

Let’s make sure no person or family goes without warm clothing this winter across our Bonanza Valley area! With any questions or concerns, call Jeanne at 320-346-2524. Please note that the green drop box located on Highway 55 is not our drop off point. The B-B-E Clothes Closet is open Wednesdays 10 to 4
