(BELLEVILLE, IL) – In recognition of February being National Canned Food Month, HSHS  Home Care and Hospice Southern Illinois is teaming up with several community organizations to “Cram the Car” with non-perishable food items for Catholic Urban Charities.
 
Help with the 4th annual “Cram the Cars” and drop off your non-perishable food items at any one of the below organizations:
  • Oliver C. Joseph Chrysler Dodge Jeep – 3795 IL-15, Belleville, IL 62226

Items can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Donations will be accepted the entire month of February.  On March 1, HSHS Home Care and Hospice will CRAM the CARS with the donated items before delivering them to Catholic Urban Charities.
 
Some non-perishable items that Catholic Urban Charities could use are:
