PRINCETON — In an effort to help keep those in need warm throughout the winter season, Bureau County 4-H Federation is hosting a “Hands to Larger Service” winter accessory donation drive.
Those interested may visit the University of Illinois Extension, located at 850 Thompson St. in Princeton, and trim the tree with new winter accessories.
“Last year’s drive resulted in the distribution of nearly 200 winter accessories across Bureau County,” Danielle Gapinski, Bureau County 4-H and Youth Development Program coordinator, said. “We hope to top that number and have a bigger impact this year.”
Donations received will be distributed to area food pantries and shelters. Hats, gloves, mittens and scarves will be accepted during business hours, 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Donations should be dropped off no later than Friday, Dec. 6.
For more information, call the Extension office at 815-875-2878.
