ARNOLD, MO (KTVI)- There was an overwhelming turnout Saturday for a donation drive in Arnold, MO that will benefit area flood victims. Students from Fox High School organized the drive. Bags and boxes of donated items filled the Fox High School library, staff cafeteria, and stretched out into the parking lot.
So many items were donated that the school district had to call off Sunday’s portion of the drive early. Now they are in need of volunteers to help sort through the items and help distribute them to the flood victims.
On Monday, families affected by the flooding can pick up donated items from the Fox C-6 Service Center beginning at 4:00PM. From Tuesday until Friday, pick-ups will be at Fox High School, also starting at 4:00PM. Both locations are located on JeffCo Boulevard.
The students want area businesses to know that if they are interested in donating gift certificates, vouchers, etc., please contact Amy Endicott at email@example.com
In Illinois, the American Legion Hall in Edwardsville will again be accepting donations of winter clothing, baby supplies, personal hygiene items and pet care supplies on Sunday from Noon to 3:00pm. They are located at 58 S. State Route 157. The drive is being organized by Illinois Angel Disaster Relief.
