Collinsville – State Rep. Katie Stuart (D-Edwardsville) is again inviting Metro-East residents to a Holiday Open House from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12 at her district office, located at 2105 Vandalia St., Unit 16, Collinsville, for the 112th House District.
This is the third year Stuart has hosted the event.
“After the fall veto session, I want to talk to residents about any concerns that they have regarding what happened or any suggestions they might have for further changes that can be made to build a stronger Illinois,” she said.
“Although it’s a busy time with the holidays approaching, I encourage everyone to come by to chat and enjoy holiday treats.”
The office provides services such as help with Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) Card applications, dealing with state agencies and a free notary service. Stuart has also been collecting hats, gloves, and scarves to provide to needy people through the Making a Difference organization. Warm clothing items will be appreciated but are not required at the open house.
“The holiday season is the perfect time to give back to those in need, especially as the temperatures start to drop,” Stuart said. “Whether you want to come by to donate new or gently used items or to talk about the upcoming legislative session, I encourage everyone to come by my open house.”
