State Representative Mark Luft (R-Pekin) is launching his holiday drive, collecting items for two local charities, just in time for Giving Tuesday! Luft’s charity drive donations will be taken to War Room Ministries and local homeless shelter Pekin Outreach.
“The holidays are a time of celebration and reflection on the year and on all of our many blessings, but also a time to remember those in need in our communities,” said Luft. “I hope people will find in their hearts to donate this holiday season.”
War Room Ministries and Pekin Outreach have identified several items that would be most helpful to allow them to continue their essential work.
War Room Ministries:
- Small Bottles of Dish Soap
- Four Packs of Toilet Paper
- Laundry Detergent
- Boots for Men and Women
- Sleeping Bags
- Heavy Duty Tents
- Small Propane Heaters and Canisters
- Flashlights and Batteries
Donations can be dropped off at Rep. Luft’s district office in Pekin, located at 2969 Court Street, from 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday. Call 309-620-9191 for more information.
