About and contact us

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!

My goal is to help small groups achieve success with their service projects, and to bring attention to local organizations changing lives. I’m a local mom, girl scout leader, church member and member of Faith Coalition looking to help others connect.

If you have an organization that is hosting a collection drive, contact collection connection with the dates of your drive, information about your group, drop off sites, and contact information. Or if you have any feedback about the site, please contact me!

Since you are here – are you looking to volunteer in the Edwardsville / Glen Carbon Community? Faith Coalition has created a large database of local opportunities. Faith Coalition All Volunteer Opportunities. This list features faith, mission, and civic, there is something for everyone! Please get involved and make a difference. Another way to make a difference in our community is to join a local facebook site which post current ways to help in the community – Edwardsville / Glen Carbon Do Good whether by supporting a group by dining out, trivia nights, blood drives, recycle, or collection drives – surely something will interest you!

A special shout out to one of my former Girl Scouts who designed my logo. I couldn’t be more proud of the custom design, that captured my mission perfectly. Danielle is available for hire – please contact me and I can put you in touch with this amazing Graphic Designer. Thanks to Dana at Restore Decor and my friends at Faith Coalition – they have made me want to be a better person. One of my original goals of this site was to get more donations for Restore Decor. (please email Dana with pictures – looking for wood furniture to re purpose) I can’t think of a better mission! I’m so proud to be part of this mission. And finally a shout out to my loving husband bob, he named the site! I love you Bob!
