The City of Taylorville has more opportunities coming in the next month for its citizens to be able to give back to the community. On August 19th the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce is hosting the community blood drive help people of the surrounding areas who are in need. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce said that this is a critical time to give blood because many people don't donate during the summer.
In September, people can help the community by taking part in the United Way Community Garage Sale, and Hornbuckle said it's important to register so everyone's sales can be advertised and placed on the map.
Hornbuckle said this a good way for participants to not only help themselves by cleaning out their homes, but also a good way to help the community by bringing people to the area. For more information call the chamber office at 824-4919, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit their office on the second floor of US Bank on the south side of the Taylorville Square. Hornbuckle appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
