Lake of the Torches Collects Almost 1,000 Winter Clothing Items For Local Children

Lac du Flambeau, Wis. – The Lac du Flambeau Public School recently received nearly 1,000 winter clothing items from Lake of the Torches Resort Casino to distribute to local schoolchildren during the upcoming winter weather season.

The donated hats, mittens, gloves and coats were collected during the casino’s Warm Up to Winning promotion held on Tuesdays in November. As part of the promotion, a total of 961 Club Advantage members brought in children’s mittens, gloves, hats or gently used winter coats. Club members received $10 Free Play each day they donated an item.

These clothing items will be given to students at the Lac du Flambeau Public School on an as-needed basis to replace missing or lost hats, mittens or gloves. They also will be handed out to students who do not have these important clothing items during harsh conditions.

“Once again we are overwhelmed with the kindness and graciousness of our Club Advantage members who continue to make Warm Up to Winning a success,” said Lake of the Torches Director of Marketing Leana Schlecht. “These donations are distributed to children throughout the season and help keeps  our community’s children warm.”

This year marked the sixth consecutive year that Lake of the Torches has held the Warm Up to Winning promotion that has collected thousands of clothing items for children at the Lac du Flambeau Public School.
