Elik Hosting Holiday Open House & Canned Food Drive December 8

State Representative Amy Elik (R-Fosterburg) will be hosting a Holiday Open House and non-perishable food drive at her district office in Alton on December 8th.

According to Representative Elik, “The Holidays and winter break can be a very difficult time for individuals and families who struggle to make ends meet, to feed their family. That’s why I am hosting a non-perishable food drive to help feed individuals and families who need it most. I encourage those who can to stop by my office and bring any non-perishable food items you can provide to help feed the hungry this Holiday season.”

The Holiday Open House and non-perishable food drive will be held on Wednesday, December 8th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Rep. Elik’s district office located at 192 Alton Square Mall Drive, Suite C in Alton. In addition to December 8th, non-perishable food items will also be accepted at Elik’s district office from December 6th – December 10th between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. All non-perishable food items collected will be given to the Crisis Food Center in Alton.
