Stuff the Bus, the WMT Radio event encouraging people to donate items for those in need, is making its annual stop in Mount Vernon this coming week.
Your Lions Club voted at their meeting to do a match of $300 to its members! So far our members have donated $150 toward the match. We hope the rest of our membership will match this by tomorrow.
They will be accepting toys, games, clothing, blankets and other items for those in need. Monetary donations are also welcome.
What's collected locally will stay local, with distribution through Southeast Linn Community Center in Lisbon.
