Donation stations

Anyone know of places in the wicker park area where I can drop of clothes to donate?

  • Northwestern Settlement house on Augusta and Noble is an excellent place to donate to, every Friday they have a giveaway of clothes, books, household things, all donated. One time I tentatively asked if they accepted used (clean) kid's pyjamas, they emphatically said yes, they need everything. Truly not for profit.

  • Mr Doug Faller Ukrainian Village Resident

    We donate to The ARK on Milwaukee.
    Information from their web site:
    Donate gently used furniture, household items, appliances or clothing to The ARK’s Thrift Shop at 1302 N. Milwaukee Ave., in Chicago. Hours are Mon. thru Thurs., 10-6; Fri., 10-5 (summer) and 10-4 (winter); Sun., 10-5. For furniture and appliance pick-up, call 773.862.5011.

Have you witnessed/been in an accident at North/Milwaukee/Damen?

Hello!

I'm a reporter for DNAinfo Chicago and a MA journalism student at DePaul.

I'm working on a story on the top 3 most dangerous intersections in Chicago, and North/Milwaukee/Damen tops of the list.

If you've witnessed or been in an accident (or close call) at North/Milwaukee/Damen, can you please message me? Email would be preferred at mina.bloom24@gmail.com.

Also feel free to call/text me at 847-370-9735.

Thanks in advance! I really appreciate your help.

  • I reached out to ATA to confirm, but I know the Chicago Tribune has them ranked that way as well:

    "The three most dangerous intersections in Chicago were Milwaukee/Damen/North; Cicero and Chicago avenues on the West Side; and Halsted Street/Lincoln Avenue/Fullerton Parkway in Lincoln Park."

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-most-dangerous-intersections-met-20141014-story.html

  • Thanks for the swift response. I had skimmed the trib article and must have blipped over their number.
    I would like to see their source data. That number would indicate either an annual accident rate at Milwaukee and Damen spiked between 2010-2013 to 250% of that in the city's 2011...

    Thanks for the swift response. I had skimmed the trib article and must have blipped over their number.
    I would like to see their source data. That number would indicate either an annual accident rate at Milwaukee and Damen spiked between 2010-2013 to 250% of that in the city's 2011 report for 2005-2009,
    or some data that indicates that 25%-40% of the accidents in Logan, Bucktown and Wicker Park go unreported, while at Ashland and 63rd, or Dearborn and Ontario, no such gap exists.

    In any case I look forward to your article

Mike Brown demonstration last night on Milwaukee

Did anyone else catch the demonstration last night (Tue, Oct. 28) or have more information about the group that staged it? They were on Milwaukee Ave. around 9:30 pm.

  • I'm curious as well ... people were marching north on Milwaukee to North; Police had the street shut down for a while ...

  • Mark (on Huron) (Happy neighbor, Official candidate, IL. St. Rep)

    Yeah--thanks for blocking the streets and giving the hard working police offices yet more disrespect. I, for one, am getting pretty tired of hearing negative things about our police officers. They deserve WAYY more love and appreciation than they do.

Hit and run accident Damen and Augusta Oct 22, 745 AM

Hi everybody,
My girlfriend and I were involved in a three car accident Wednesday morning where the driver at fault left the scene in which injuries were sustained. The offender was a white woman in her forties, overweight, with short hair, driving an early 2000's Lincoln continental or similar vehicle. Her vehicle has extensive damage to the front and should need repair. Any help tracking her down would be greatly rewarded. Thanks!!!

  • Check the auto-repair shops in whichever part of the city and surrounding it happened in. Tell whoever you speak to you'll give them a $100 reward (and then do it). Find the lady and make her pay. Dire consequences for hit and run.

  • Vehicle color?
