December 2015 at Peoria Friendship House
So many projects and so many volunteers! We are so grateful for everyone who has helped make this holiday season special at Peoria Friendship House.
Here are a few of our accomplishments:
• PFH’s first ever Lego League team won the Judge’s Choice Award at their first competition. • Terri Taylor and her wonderful family made a huge impact with the Sugar Plum Project; they provided beds for 70 children. • Friday Night Take Out served 152 households one week, enough food for the WHOLE weekend. Bringing our total meals Friday Night Take Out program has provided to over 105,945 in 2015!! • Christmas Tree Lane allowed 124 households to choose gifts for 558 of their loved ones! All of this could not have happened without the numerous donations and volunteers, of both young and old. Even as young as 7 year old Cole Whitaker.
-Thank you and Merry Christmas from Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service
