Heading out to the Ecolab Ice Palace in Rice Park? Bring some cold weather gear to share with your neighbors in need.
Charlie Lehnen and Danny Maslowski, two members of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Royal Family, spent the night on the balcony of the Ecolab Ice Palace in Rice Park to raise awareness of the drive. You can honor their chilly sleepover by making a donation of warm clothing.
Organizers of the drive are encouraging you to bring new or gently-used coats, hats, mittens and boots to Rice Park and put them in the 2019 Dodge Ram by the palace.
The items will be collected and distributed by Neighbors, Inc, a non-profit, social-service agency serving communities in northern Dakota County.
