11/16/2018- The annual campaign to keep local families in need warm this winter kicks off. The Marinette Welcome Center, in conjunction with Travel Wisconsin’s statewide effort, is collecting donations for their Big Bundle Up. The Welcome Center will accept new or gently used mittens, hats, scarves, coats, and sweaters now through January 2nd to be distributed to the local homeless shelter or the Salvation Army. Donations can be delivered to the Welcome Center in Marinette weekdays from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Last year, more than 500 winter clothing items were collected during the local Big Bundle Up.
