Each agency received 93 blankets thanks to the drive that took place in part of October and all of November. We still have people dropping off, said BRITTANY HENRY, executive director of the visitors bureau. We will collect through the end of December and will take the remainder after the first of the year. Henry and Michelle Smith, general manager of the Hampton Inn, decided to do the blanket drive this year as a change from a Hat, Gloves, and Scarves drive that had been conducted for years. The Hampton Inn was in the process of getting new bedding for the hotel, and Michelle had mentioned donating some of her blankets, Henry said. We had an Illinois College student research the Jacksonville area and found that we could really benefit other organizations by hosting this drive, as we found there wasnt another drive like this. Hampton Inn donated more than two dozen blankets, with the rest provided by local people and charity groups. Some businesses made monetary donations. The Jacksonville area has been extremely fortunate to have our lodging stay very busy over the last year, Henry said. With our drive going on, we had families that have been in the area for nine-plus months come into our office and donate 15-plus blankets. The Hampton Inn and Convention & Visitors Bureau plan to conduct the drive again next year. For more information about the Jacksonville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, visit jacksonvilleil.org.
