La Crosse, WI (WXOW) - A statewide drive is under way to collect used gloves, hats, coats and other winter gear.

Now through January 4th the items can be dropped off at the Visitors Bureau office at Riverside Park or the I-90 Welcome Center.

Warm weather clothing can also be dropped off at Lambeau Field before the start of the Green Bay Packers game on December 9.
