CEVO hosting donation drive

Staff Report

The Civic Engagement and Volunteerism Office is holding a donation drive for the Coles County Animal Shelter until Friday.

Items can be dropped off in room 3065 of the Martin Luther King, Jr. University Union.

This is a part of the new monthly non-profit drive the office will hold to spotlight various organizations in the community.

High priority donation items include cat litter, Purina Cat and Kitten Chow, cat and dog toys, newspapers, rugs, and cleaning supplies.

According to the CEVO, “The Coles County Animal Shelter houses lost and relinquished dogs, cats, and other small animals.

They focus on positive training and socialization to promote growth and happy lifestyles for pets in their care.

They are currently facilitating adoptions through appointment only, but the need is still the same.

This animal shelter is located just east of the airport.”
