ALTON — State Rep. Dan Beiser (D-Alton) is hosting a supply drive for Oasis Women’s Center Tuesday, Jan. 19, to Friday, Feb. 19. Donations can be dropped off 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Beiser’s constituent service office, 528 Henry St.
“Due to the current budget impasse, many organizations such as Oasis Women’s Center are suffering,” Beiser said. “Oasis has been able to remain open despite a lack of funding, but the continuing budget stalemate has created a large strain. I want to help ensure that they will be able to continue providing aid to women and children in need. The supply drive will help to alleviate some of the burden that they are facing.”
Organizers are requesting donations of liquid laundry detergent, alarm clock radios, toilet paper, paper towels, deodorant, hair products, diapers sizes four, five and six; pull-ups, shampoo, conditioner, bars of soap, combs, brushes and baby bottles.
“Representative Beiser truly cares about the well-being of his constituents,” Margarette Trushel of Oasis Women’s Center said. “He has always recognized the need for domestic violence resources in our area. I want to thank him for organizing the supply drive because Oasis clients can use all of the help that they can get, especially in these difficult economic times.”
