A local group of listeners are putting together their "Second Annual Chase The Chill" event December 12, 2016 in Rockford and Freeport. The idea is to provide gloves, mittens, hats and scarfs for the homeless &those in need, regardless of income. If you can sew, knit, or shop, here's how you can help Chase The Chill.


This Second Annual Chase The Chill event is coming Saturday December 12, 2016. Residence of the Stateline will be coming together to help those in need by making handmade scarves, hats, and gloves to give away.  You can even buy them if you like. These items are displayed in public places in Rockford and Freeport so that those in need, regardless of income and without any qualifiers, can help themselves to them.
