• The Good News Volunteer Center opens Sunday, Dec. 1, in the Quincy Mall Community Room. Center hours will be 6-9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 18.

• Monetary contributions to the campaign may be dropped off at the volunteer center or mailed to The Quincy Herald-Whig, in care of Good News of Christmas, 130 S. Fifth, Quincy, IL 62301. Donations may be directed to a specific Good News family; note the case number on the check.
