ROMEOVILLE, Ill. – State Rep. John Connor, D-Lockport, is sponsoring a women’s supply drive throughout the month of May to benefit the women at MorningStar Mission’s Women and Family Center in Joliet.
“MorningStar Mission does incredible work for our community, and I want to help address the needs of the women they serve in their Women and Family Center,” Connor said. “This drive will help provide necessary items like tampons, pads and panty liners that these women may not have immediate access to.”
Connor’s office will be collecting new, unopened boxes of feminine products including tampons, pads, panty liners and feminine wipes beginning May 7 through the end of the month. Items can be dropped off at Connor’s district office located at 209 W. Romeo Rd. in Romeoville, or the Annerino Community Center at 201 Recreation Drive in Bolingbrook.
“Our community is fortunate to be served by organizations such as MorningStar, which provide a critical service to individuals who are going through a rough patch in their life,” Connor said. “I encourage residents to take time to give back by either donating or volunteering with MorningStar.”
Individuals interested in volunteering at MorningStar can visit morningstarmission.org/serve-volunteer/.
For more information on this month’s drive, residents can contact Connor’s constituent service office at 815-372-0085 or RepConnor@gmail.com.
