Local Manufacturer Makes Generous Donation to Will County

Spelich-Perry-Walsh with Jeans

Thanks to a generous donation from Midwest Generation, the Clothes4Work closet of the Will County Workforce Services Division will have an abundance of clothing to offer its customers this holiday season.
According to Pat Fera, manager of the Workforce Investment Board, the company contacted her office with a proposal to donate 500 pairs of jeans.
“The jeans were offered because Midwest Generation had a change in contractor clothing and did not need the jeans,” Fera said. “We gladly accepted the donation because many of our clients are in need of jeans for their jobs. The jeans are in sizes 32 to 50 and in good shape. ”
Will County Executive Larry Walsh joined Bill Spelich, the company’s senior procurement agent, and Scott Perry, Midwest Generation’s Joliet station manager, to collect the jeans. Walsh said the donation comes at a very good time.
“With the holidays upon us, this generous donation from Midwest Generation is very welcome,” Walsh said. “I am proud Midwest Generation has chosen to partner with Will County to lend a hand to our residents. Midwest Generation is an important member of our business community.”
Fera said the Clothes4 Work closet is open to any resident seeking employment through the Workforce Services Division. Currently, the closet has many items ranging from suits and business causal to work wear for men and women. The Clothes4Work closet serves more than 25 customers each month.
