The Glasgow Soroptimists, along with Pacific Steel and Recycling and the Glasgow High School Student Council, will be collecting funds for the annual Block of Bucks Friday, Dec. 4, 2015.

The annual program provides clothing for Valley County children from infant to 12 years of age.

Donations are needed to fund the shopping event and volunteers will collect donations at two downtown locations from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Look for the volunteers at the stoplight between the post office and Western Drug on 2nd Avenue South, and at the intersection near Independence Bank and D&G, next to the Christmas tree.

In 2014, the program collected a record $30,019 and provided warm clothing for 214 children.

Fortunately, Mother Nature may take pity on the volunteers collecting this year, as the forecast is calling for a high of 42. Hopefully, the warm weather won't deter the community from their unfaltering generosity and the Block of Bucks can look forward to another record year.

Prior to collection day, donations may be mailed to: Soroptimists of Glasgow, Box 961, Glasgow, MT 59230.

Volunteers are also needed to help families shop on Saturday, Dec. 5. If you are interested in helping or have any questions, please call Mary Armstrong at 253-350-2070. Volunteers can also check in at the Elks Lodge between 8:30-8:45 a.m. Cooperating local businesses include Shopko, D&G, and Little Campers.
