Food baskets still available
The Beardstown Lions Club and the JBS food committee are in the process of preparing and distributing Christmas food baskets. Individuals had the opportunity in the two weeks before Thanksgiving to call the Beardstown Chamber of Commerce and register to receive a food basket.
These baskets are to those who are low-income, unemployed, or elderly. The deadline was established in order to ensure that there was time to order and prepare the contents of the baskets.
Although names are no longer being taken, it is still possible to be added to the waiting list, in the event that someone is not available to receive their basket. Anyone who is interested in volunteering to help distribute baskets on December 19 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. or those who wish to be added to the waiting list, can contact the Beardstown Chamber of Commerce at 323-3271.
