Warm Over The Winter
Mission: This campaign is meant to support our cities homeless by acquiring a variety of winter garments and donating them to our local shelters and homeless refugee centers in the Chicago area this winter.
These garments can include coats, hats, socks, gloves, scarves, or any other item that could help the homeless population stay warm.
Find out more information below about why we are deciding to do this campaign and how you can be involved!
Homeless Population in Chicago

Who We Are Working With
We not only offer supply chain services to for profit organizations, we do for nonprofit organizations as well. We have contacted a number of homeless shelters and refugee centers across the Chicago area to excute this campaign. The following organizations we plan to work with include:
How To Get This Done
We will first begin collecting donations of winter garments. You can drop off your donations at any of the Unilogic locations.
The deadline for this is November 20th.
Once we have reached the deadline, we will begin sorting through and organizing the donations. We will then group them up and get them ready to be sent to the participating local shelters and refugee centers.
After we have sorted through all of the donations and divded them up up by each shelter and refugee center, our team will begin transporting them to their destinations.
This will happen on the first week of December.
