State Representative Kevin Schmidt has pledged to donate the legislative pay raise he voted against to different local community outreach efforts in his community. This month, he has chosen the Freeburg Food and Clothing Bank.
He delivered the food today and released the following statement: “Today I dropped off my monthly food donation at the Freeburg Food and Clothing Bank. I donate my salary increase back to local food banks every month. I voted NO for that increase, so I donate it back with food. This bank has a conveniently placed drop box connected to their building for local donations.”
If you’d like to donate to their cause, the Freeburg Food and Clothing Bank can be found at 1050 N. State St. in Freeburg.
Rep. Schmidt proudly serves the people of the 114th District.
