State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) will host a holiday open house and non-perishable food drive at her Alton district office on December 8.
According to Representative Elik, “The holidays and winter vacations can be a very difficult time for individuals and families who are struggling to make ends meet, to feed their families. That’s why I’m organizing a non-perishable food drive to help feed the people and families who need it most. I encourage those who can to drop by my office and bring any non-perishable foods you can provide to help feed the hungry this holiday season.
The holiday open house and non-perishable food drive will take place on Wednesday, December 8 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the district office of Rep. Elik located at 192 Alton Square Mall Drive, Suite C in Alton. In addition to December 8, non-perishable foods will also be accepted at the Elik district office from December 6 to 10 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. All non-perishable food collected will be donated to the Crisis Food Center in Alton.
The event is free and open to the public. Brochures on state programs will also be available. If you have any questions about the event, please contact the State Representative Amy Elik’s office at 618-433-8046.
