Ela Township is collecting coats and jackets of all sizes for families in need, including men, women and children.

Donations will be delivered to TLS Veterans, a nonprofit organization that assist veterans and their families throughout Lake and McHenry counties.

A collection box is located just inside the township hall at 1155 E. Route 22, in Lake Zurich.

New and gently used items are both appreciated!
