We are thrilled to announce the results of our 11th Annual Rookie Food Drive to benefit Heart of Illinois Harvest!
New member food drive chairs Jason Mott (Peoria Chiefs) and Jen Funk (EP!C) did a great job of encouraging membership participation and challenged teams to friendly and stiff competition. Today, Thursday, February 8th, 2018, we will announce to the club members and the community that we have once again surpassed our goal for the Heart of Illinois Harvest and have collected an astounding amount of donations.
15,799 food items collected from our membership which is 2,808 more than last year!
And an amazing $3,504 dollars to go towards the HOI’s gas and vehicle maintenance bill that
allows their vans to collect and drop off much-needed donations.
At today’s meeting our club will celebrate exceeding our goal by pie-ing SEVERAL members of our club leadership. New this year, thanks to exceeding multiple goals set for the club, our Executive Director, Paula Bergstresser, will also receive a pie in the face.
