A team of volunteers from the Community Hope Center is heading back to Oklahoma next weekend to help families impacted by the devastating tornado. While the main focus this time will be on logging volunteer hours, you can also help out by donating items that will be essential in the clean-up and recovery.
Angela Valdez, Development Director at the center, says they are leaving Friday morning.
You can drop your donations off at a number of locations around the Riverbend, including Bemis Chiropractic in North Alton, Riverbend Family Ministries in Wood River, Woodman Collision Center on Alby Street in Alton, and the CNB Bank on the Homer Adams Parkway in Alton. The deadline for drop-off is Thursday, June 6th. The semi will be leaving for Oklahoma on Friday June 7. If you can spend next weekend helping volunteer, call Valdez at 618-558-6433.
