Happy Holiday Season!!!

The Pekin Daily Times wishes to share some important information with you. This year, we will be hosting the Second Annual Pekin Times Holiday Drive sponsored by Kouri’s Pub and Velde Auto Sales! We are very excited to be able to run a holiday drive and to help out those in need in our community. If you wish to help, simply bring in canned foods for food baskets and/or a new unwrapped toy. At that time, you will be entered into a drawing to win a gift certificate from either Kouri’s Pub or Velde Auto Sales.

If you can’t come into the office, just give us a call, and we can schedule a time to come pick up your donation.

If you know of a family that needs assistance, we ask you to please send in a letter nominating that family for assistance this holiday season. Please make sure you include the families information and why you believe they need assistance, as well as contact information. All nomination letters will be read by a panel of Pekin Times employees and selection of families will be  based on need, as well as donations we receive. The more we receive, the more families we can help. Also, please keep a look out for updates and results of our holiday drive in your copy of the Pekin Daily Times and on our website at www.pekintimes.com!

Our Holiday Drive runs from Nov. 1 through Dec. 18.

Thank you and Happy Holidays from all of us at the Pekin Daily Times and GateHouse Media!!
