Helping Hands: July 28, 2014
WSIL -- Our helping hands segment isn't just about volunteering. There are other ways you can help in the community, especially this time of year.
Black Diamond Harley Davidson
Black Diamond Harley Davidson is hosting a school supply giveaway with several other businesses and groups on Saturday, August 2. But before that happens, they need plenty of donated school supplies. If you want to help, drop items off at Black Diamond, any Rent One store, or River Radio. The deadline to drop off items is August 1.
United Way of South Central Illinois
The United Way of South Central Illinois is holding a big back to school supply event too. It's the annual Stuff the Bus campaign. There's a party planned on Saturday, August 8 from 11 until 4 at GenFed Financial on 42nd Street in Mt. Vernon. People who donate school supplies that day will receive a free lunch while supplies last. Items needed this year include notebook paper, pencils, markers, and crayons.
If your group is in need of some Helping Hands, email us here at the station.
