Winter ImageSPRINGFIELD – Winter months in northern Illinois can bring brutal weather. To help ensure residents in Will County have access to warm clothes, State Senator Patrick Joyce will be co-hosting a winter clothing drive with State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant.

From Nov. 25 to Dec. 13, local and state elected officials will be working together to ensure there is an adequate amount of supplies at organizations throughout the region that benefit Will County residents.

“It gets extremely cold during the winter months in Will County, therefore, I want to help folks who may not have the proper apparel to stay warm during the most frigid time of the year,” Joyce said.

The following items are welcome: gently used or new winter gear including coats, socks, sweatshirts, scarves, gloves and more.

The coldest time of the year can be very difficult for low-income families, seniors, veterans and the homeless.

Senator JoyceSPRINGFIELD - The Senate welcomes its newest member last week: Patrick Joyce from Essex. Joyce was sworn into office Friday Nov. 8, at Kankakee Community College.

Joyce replaces Toi Hutchinson, who resigned to become Governor JB Pritzker’s cannabis czar, as state senator for the 40th Legislative District.

“It is an honor to follow the outstanding Senator Hutchinson. I would like to thank her for the excellent job she has done for Kankakee and the South Suburbs,” Joyce said.

Joyce has spent most of his life running his small business. With a degree in Agribusiness from Illinois State University, Joyce has spent 19 years on the Kankakee County Farm Bureau’s Board of Directors.
