A carload of donations was picked up recently from Banner Bank as part of Altrusa International of Hermiston’s donation drive for the Hermiston Warming Station. Items can still be dropped off through the end of the month at multiple locations throughout town.

Members of Altrusa International of Hermiston are thrilled with the outpouring of donations for the Hermiston Warming Station.

The local service club has put collection boxes at several locations in town in December. The collection drive continues through the end of January.

Items requested include household cleaning and paper products, beverages, laundry and dishwashing soap, foot powder, socks, hand/foot warmers. For a complete list, call the warming station or search Facebook.

Collection sites include Shipping Solutions, Dance Unlimited, Old West Federal Credit Union, Banner Bank and the Hermiston Chamber of Commerce. In addition, donations can be dropped off at the Hermiston Warming Station Wednesdays from 3-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 1-3 p.m. at 1075 S. Highway 395. People are asked to drive around back and leave donations with a volunteer. Call 541-289-2150 to arrange another time.
