Consolidated Communications is teaming up with Operation Honor Guard to raise money for the non-profit this coming Wednesday, October 11.
Sarah Greider is a Corporate Communications Coordinator at Consolidated. She says Operation Honor Guard provides funds for local honor guards to buy the clothing worn to military funeral services.
Greider says hosting this collection is one way Consolidated is trying to give back to the community, and it also gives area residents a way to thank veterans for their service.
The collection will run from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the company’s corporate offices in Mattoon. Donors are asked to pull in from Charleston Avenue and will be directed to exit the lot from the alley on to South 17th Street after making their donation.
