The Giving Place seeking donations to help Unit 7 families

TOLONO - In addition food donations, The Giving Place is seeking kids clothing, especially for young boys, this month.

"The Giving Place started as a way for our church and other community churches to minister to the Unit 7 School District and help those in need," said Mike Williams. "All donations of food are most welcome as the need in our community is great. This ministry can’t survive without the support of our community."

Any family in need residing in the Unit 7 school district is encouraged to visit The Giving Place Wednesdays from 4:00 – 6:00. TGP is located at 113 N Bourne in Tolono.

This week, the organization served seven families, which included 18 adults and seven children, with eight boxes of food totalling $400.

Williams said the ministry will continue for as long as they are able to do so and thanked those who donated items throughout the year.

Donated items and food may be dropped off every Wednesday between 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. or every first Saturday between 9:00 a.m. - Noon. TGP asks that donation not be left outside the building during closed hours.
