Journal’s Cheer Club rolling along

Salvation Army volunteer Loki Jacobson holds a toy dropped off for the The Mining Journal’s Cheer Club. The club, which kicked off last Friday, collects unwrapped toys and gifts to be donated to local children and families in need during the holiday season. Gifts are distributed to local families through St. Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army of Marquette County. Gifts can be dropped off at The Mining Journal office in downtown Marquette; St. Vincent de Paul in Marquette; Range Bank locations in Marquette, Harvey and Negaunee; the Marquette Salvation Army; and Ace Hardware in Gwinn. Journal staff members are available to take photos of Cheer Club donors who drop off items at The Mining Journal office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Mining Journal will accept donations up to Dec. 23. However, only items dropped off by Dec. 16 will be available for this season’s gift distribution. (Journal photo by Alexandria Bournonville)
