Collection underway for brothers who lost home in fire
The three Southwick brothers who lost their rural McGregor home to a fire Nov. 29 have been provided temporary shelter by the American Red Cross. In this time of need for the Southwicks, Mayor Gay Hallberg is organizing a drive to collect necessities for them, including everything from clothing, furniture and beds to kitchen supplies, household items, bathroom essentials and toiletries.
If you would like to donate, please contact Hallberg at (563) 873-2761 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contribute to the Southwick Fire Benefit fund at Central State Bank in McGregor.
