The Illinois State Police want to help those less fortunate this holiday season. Illinois State Police District 9 is collaborating with the Salvation Army to hold a clothing drive for those in need this Christmas season.
Sean Ramsey is the Safety Education Officer for District 9 of the Illinois State Police. He says they are collecting more than just coats for the less fortunate this year.
Ramsey says it is not just the police’s job to protect the public, but also to serve them.
Those wishing to donate can bring their items to the State Police Headquarters at 801 S. 7th Street in Springfield during business hours between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The drive will run from now until December 20.
