Ela Township is collecting new and gently used winter coats for veterans and their families. Donations will be made to the nonprofit organization TLS Veterans, which assists veterans and their families in Lake and McHenry counties.

Coats may be dropped off in the box just inside the Town Hall, located at 1155 E. Route 22, Lake Zurich, during normal business hours. We are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday.
