USW Local #7-669 to hold Toy Drive for Brookport

METROPOLIS, IL (KFVS) -

Dozens of Brookport families are still without homes following the November 17 tornado, but one group is working to make their Christmas as merry as it can be.

The United Steelworkers #7-669 will host a toy drive to help Brookport children.

"We understand that everyone's immediate needs seem to be met, so we wanted to do something to help ease a little pressure this holiday season off of those attempting to recover and put their lives back together," said Franklin Walter, the USW Local #7-669's community outreach chairman. "Hopefully we can help these families have one less thing to worry about."

Anyone is invited to donate new, unwrapped toys to the United Steelworkers 7-669 union hall located at 3831 U.S. Highway 45 in Metropolis, Ill. on Tuesday, December 3 between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
