A February Homewood-Flossmoor community collection of unwanted gift items for the Leave It for Love project will help brighten a senior citizen’s day, said founder Jennifer Molski of Flossmoor.
Suggested items include hostess gifts, warm weather gear, trinkets, household décor, makeup and perfume. Books and clothing are not being accepted. The regifting program is designed to offer unused items to those “who think they are all alone in this world,” she said.
Gifts will be collected at Loulou Belle at 2049 Ridge Road in Homewood and Coldwell Banker at 1056 Sterling Drive in Flossmoor. Gifts are distributed throughout the year by Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly, an agency providing social services to older adults in the Chicagoland area.
