Project Success of Eastern Bureau County
PROJECT SUCCESS began in 1996 as the brainchild of then Illinois’ First Lady Brenda Edgar as a means of creating community programs that would involve families – children and parents working, playing and being together.
Programs have changed with the times, but the mission remains the same – to offer activities to strengthen family units.
Numerous local organizations, including houses of worship, service and civic organizations, school groups, scouts and local businesses – as well as friends, contribute to our programs. Dedicated volunteers make our work possible – and for them – we are most thankful and appreciative
One of the most visible programs sponsored by Project Success is Hall Twp. Food Pantry. This is a Client-Choice Pantry – which means our patrons “shop” with the help of volunteers who serve as personal shoppers.
This enables them to select items they like and need rather than being given a pre-packaged box of food. Patrons are allowed to shop once each month and leave the Pantry with over 70 lbs. of food.
To support the Pantry, we plan several fund – and food raisers where the help of volunteers is so important.
Hall Township Food Pantry serves on a monthly basis over 300 families (1000 individuals) and these numbers are growing as the needs continue to be met for more and more of our residents increase. The face of hunger is ever changing.
