4. The city of St. Charles and Charlestowne 18 Movie Theaters will hold a winter clothing drive in conjunction with the release and showing of the movie Munger Road. Drop-off boxes in the St. Charles Municipal Center and at the theater's main lobby service desk will collect donations of new and gently worn winter clothing for children and adults, through Oct. 10.
All donations will benefit the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul charities.
5. Fun Fact: Family Day was started on Sept. 26, 2001 by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University. The holiday encourages parents to "eat dinner with your children" because the frequent family sit-down encourages conversation, which can be an effective way to keep kids free from substance abuse.
