WOOD RIVER – State Sen. Rachelle Crowe, D-Glen Carbon, and state Rep. Monica Bristow, D-Alton, are partnering to bring in non-perishable food items for those in need in the Metro East.

“We can all make a difference right here in our own neighborhoods by donating a few food items to those in need,” Crowe said. “This food will be available to our friends and neighbors who are struggling to find their next meal.”

Non-perishable food items are being collected at Crowe’s office at 111 N. Wood River Ave., Suite A, in Wood River, and at Bristow’s office 102 W. 9th St., Suite 104, in Alton.

Hunger relief is one of the core programs Operation Blessing employs to help families rise up out of poverty. The nonprofit, humanitarian organization — with a branch in Wood River — is dedicated to alleviating human need and suffering.

Crowe also is coordinating with the Goshen Market to bring its “Beet Box” program to Wood River by the end of the month. For more information, call 618-251-9840.
