Swanson aiding construction company in Hurricane recovery donations

Valley Construction of Rock Island is gathering supplies to send to Houston to aid in Hurricane Harvey efforts.
The company is getting assistance from three state legislators including the 74th District’s own Dan Swanson.

The Republican Swanson along with Representatives Tony McCombie of Savanna and Mike Halpin of Rock Island are encouraging constituents to donate goods and bring them to a variety of locations.

There are various locations to give for those interested.

Probably the closest for most of the WGIL listening area would be in Rep. Swanson’s legislative office in Woodhull at 536 Oxford Avenue Suite D.

Some of the items they are asking be donated include; plastic totes, bleach, flashlights, batteries mops, brooms and diapers.

Questions can be directed to greghass@valleyconstruction.com.
