Community members and businesses that would like to contribute to the back-to-school drive can bring items to one of six drop-off locations, including the Glen Ed Pantry, the YMCA Meyer Center and Esic Center and the three Edwardsville branches of First Clover Leaf Bank, from June 16-July 21. All types of school supplies will be accepted, but the pantry is especially in need of combination locks, folders with brads, tennis shoes of all sizes, socks of all sizes, plastic shoe boxes and one-inch binders, as well as monetary donations and gift cards to Target and Walmart. Information about collection needs will be posted on the Glen Ed Pantry’s website and on First Clover Leaf Bank’s Facebook page throughout the summer.

Collection Connection is your go-to website when you are ready to unload something you’ve been collecting but just don’t know where to go with it. The concept is simple: connect organizations who are holding a collection drive with people who can do the collecting. Old cell phones, prom dresses, Christmas lights, pet supplies… the list goes on and on. Instead of adding your stuff to a landfill, check Collection Connection for a drop off location where your items can be recycled, repurposed or reused! View more posts
