State Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, is co-hosting a winter clothing drive to support laid-off steelworkers.
“Jeff Raines, Terry Briggs, and all of those involved in the Steelworkers Organization of Active Retirees and the United Way continually impress me with their dedication to our local communities, and the December drive is just another example of the hard work they do,” said Stuart. “During this holiday season, we need to remember those who have fallen on hard times, as many of the families of laid-off steelworkers have, and try to bring a little joy to their lives.”
Stuart’s office at 2105 Vandalia St in Collinsville will serve as a drop-off site for any winter clothing from now until Dec. 19. Food and clothing will also be accepted on Wednesday, Dec. 20, from noon until 5 p.m. at the Granite City Township Hall, located at 2060 Delmar Ave. in Granite City.
