SUPERIOR — Grandmothers for Peace is holding its first in-person toy collection since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The Northland chapter is collecting books and art supplies for children and teens this holiday season. Gifts must be unwrapped and should promote creativity and kindness, and support diversity.

Gifts can be dropped off at the Superior Public Library and in Duluth at Zenith Books, At Sara’s Table and Peace United Church of Christ.

Donations made in Duluth will be given to families in the American Indian Community Housing Organization’s transitional housing program. Gifts collected in Superior will go to the Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse.

The drive runs through Dec. 21.


The Youth in Governance program is open to students in grades 10-12.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
