  • Holiday basket fund underway

    • email print
  • The 2013 Community Holiday Basket project has been a success serving 160 families and over 600 people in the Metamora Township High School District.
    These are families in need of assistance this year, either temporary or otherwise.
    This number has increased by 40 families from previous years. Donations from individual families and organizations help fund this project and make it possible to give these families a little extra this holiday season.
    Although the baskets that were filled with food items and household staples have been given out, cash donations are still needed.
    Cash donations are used to purchase these items.
    These donations may be taken or mailed to Commerce Bank Englewood Drive, Metamora, IL 61548.
    Checks should be made out to Community Holiday Basket Fund.
    The fund is open for donations year-round and donations will be accepted at the bank.
    Anyone who may have questions should contact Lisa Obery, chairman at 657-5394 or email at oberyl@mtco.com.
