it around here! Are you tired of the rain? How about the gloomy weather? We are offering up a
taste of spring in this month's home page update.

|Waste Management Sponsors a Dedicated
Blood Drive for Young Leukemia Patient
Employees from Waste Management gave the gift
of life at a blood drive in honor of seven year old
Hannah Brumley, of Grantie City, on Friday,
March 21st at their facility in Belleville . Hannah
has been diagnosed with
leukemia and is presently undergoing treatment.
|A family member, Tim Kirksey, that is employed by Waste Management, along with other employees,
helped coordinate the blood drive in Hannah’s honor. General Manager Kenny Skaggs and his team
from Waste Management were instrumental in getting employees to the drive. Fifty two people
showed up to help save the lives of children like Hannah and the thousands of people who need
blood to survive in the eight local hospitals that Central Illinois Community Blood Center
supplies with blood. Christina Schutze recruiter for the blood center said, “Blood is needed every
day for patients with cancer, trauma, sickle cell anemia and other diseases. We are very thankful that
Waste Management recognizes that need and participates in this community service.”

GraniteCityGossip.com's Plea to
Ellen to Help our APA
After years of dedicated service, not only to our own community,
but to many surrounding communities, our local APA not only
is desperate for a face lift, but is so deserving of it.
The following message was sent to talk show host
Ellen Degeneres in hopes she can highlight the good works of
our APA and inspire people to send in donations from
around the country.
We are a couple of local gals on a mission. We are from
Granite City, Illinois, a small steel mill town located across the
Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri. Over the last several
years, our community’s population has gone from
46,000 to 32,000, and during this time our local APA has
Our mission is to save our local Granite City Association for
the Protection of Animals from closing it’s doors. Our APA is
completely funded through donations, and those donations have all
but stopped coming. Our shelter is a “no kill” shelter that has
been in existence for over thirty years....
