State Rep. John Connor, D-Lockport, recently visited MorningStar Mission in Joliet to deliver donations from the clothing drive he hosted earlier in December with state Rep. Larry Walsh Jr., D-Joliet.
“MorningStar Mission is a wonderful organization that does important work in our community,” Connor said in a news release. “The winter months can be especially difficult for those in need, and I hope that the donations from our clothing drive can help make a difference.”
MorningStar Mission is an organization that offers programs for families, young men and at-risk youth. The organization also provides thousands of food baskets and gifts to families and individuals in need during the holiday season and gives school supplies to more than 300 children at the beginning of each school year.
“Helping those in need is important during the holiday season, but is necessary year-round,” Connor said. “I’m grateful for everyone who generously donated, and I encourage residents to visit MorningStar Mission’s website to find information.”
