City of Marion to host food and school supply drives

The City of Marion is celebrating Public Power week by hosting a food Drive and a Teacher School Supply Drive. Bring items to Margo Yates at the city office and enter the drawing for a chance to receive $25 off your City of Marion bill.

Please bring nonperishable food items only. Suggested items for teachers are sticky notes, paper towels, white paper plates, ziplock bags in gallon and quart sizes, small packages of Kleenex, fun band-aids, sidewalk chalk, crayons, washable markers, pencils, glue, craft paints, peppermints, Tootsie rolls, M&Ms and skittles.

Please bring items in now through Oct. 31 to Yates at the city offices. There will be a drawing for two winners, one for food items and one for school supply items. Winners will be announced at the beginning of November and utility bills will be credited in December.
