The City of O’Fallon, Missouri, is offering a new Siding Installation/Replacement Program to help low-income resident homeowners maintain their houses. The program provides applicants who qualify with grants of up to $10,000. The grants are allocated on a first come, first-served basis to applicants who qualify, and they do not have to be repaid.

“The program is designed to help low-to-moderate-income homeowners with the extensive cost of siding installation and repair, costs that they could not otherwise afford,” said Alexis Jaegers, O’Fallon’s Public Assistance Specialist. “From a maintenance standpoint, siding is one of the most important investments a homeowner can make, and, by helping homeowners maintain their home’s exterior, the program also benefits O’Fallon neighborhoods.”

To help local blood banks maintain adequate supplies this winter, the City of O’Fallon is hosting the National Volunteer Donor Month Blood Drive on Friday, January 22, from 11a.m.-3 p.m., at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon 63366. The drive is co-sponsored by Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC). Donors must be in good health, have a photo I.D., and be at least 17, or age 16 with parental consent.

“Winter can be challenging for health-care facilities when it comes to maintaining blood inventories, especially with an increase in cold weather-related injuries,” said Kathy Halstead, O’Fallon’s Manager of Volunteer Services. “Blood supplies are always in demand, but icy weather often keeps donors away, creating critical needs with the potential to delay scheduled surgeries and other treatments. We’re encouraging every healthy adult to take a few moments to help save local lives by donating blood this month.”
