Family Dollar Issues a Tissue Challenge


Sarah, Jeannie, Richard and Brian, the management team from the Family Dollar store at 501 N. Springfield Ave., Rockford, have issued a challenge to other stores and businesses to begin a toilet paper drive, as they have done at their store. After they read an article in the Rockford Register Star about the Mission needing toilet paper, they jumped into action, collecting rolls donated by customers.

Like our friends at Family Dollar, come jump on the bandwagon and help us collect 10,000 rolls of toilet paper – the average amount used at the Mission in one year.  We’re almost halfway there; 4,318 rolls have been collected so far.
