 BROOKPORT, Ill - December 3rd is Giving Tuesday, where you are urged to donate your time, goods, and services to those in need, and with the holiday season all ready upon us, many of those affected in the Brookport area are questioning how they will provide those treasured toys so many kids look forward to.

United Steelworkers Local 7-669 is holding a toy drive for Brookport Tornado Victims today.

New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off at the United Steelworkers 7-669 union hall located at 3831 US Highway 45, Metropolis, Ill Tuesday, December 3rd between 4-8 p.m.

If you cannot make this designated time, you can contact John Paul Smith at (618) 638-7894 to set up a drop off time.

The union's Community Outreach Chairman said, "we wanted to do something to help ease a little pressure this holiday season."
