Floyd's 99 employees in La Grange gather to show off some of the coats local residents have donated for their coat drive this holiday season.

LA GRANGE — Floyd’s 99 employees in La Grange recently took in 200 coats from customers of the barbershop along with hats and gloves to be donated to the Franciscan Outreach Association.

While Floyd’s began its coat drive three years ago at its other locations in Chicago, last year was the first for La Grange. The local shop offered half-priced haircuts to encourage participation, but this year, no incentive was necessary.

"People were asking about the drive before the banners even went up," said Pete Vercellin, Floyd’s 99 operations manager. "The generosity in La Grange is amazing."

Floyd’s 99 is located at 71 S. La Grange Road. For more information, call the shop at 708-639-4230.
