Our Clothing Drive to Fight Epilepsy – PPM Chicago Apartments

We Want Your Clothes

PPM Chicago apartments’ recently collected a (literal) ton of clothing to help fight epilepsy, and now we’re at it again.  We have paired with the Friends of Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago to collect used clothing, which will then used to help provide programs and services for over 130,000 area residents affected by epilepsy.

Collection bins will be at these Chicago apartment buildings from June 15th to June 29th:

  • 350 W. Oakdale
  • 1120 N. LaSalle

We will take clothing of ANY type and in ANY condition:

  • Shirts
  • Shoes
  • Belts
  • Pants
  • Coats
  • Bags and purses
  • Children’s clothing

Other acceptable items include:

  • towels
  • linens
  • decorative pillows
  • blankets
