  • Thankful Giving Report -
    Thanksgiving 2018:
    We had another wonderful year’s response to the Rockford Rescue Mission with pies to serve on Thanksgiving. To be surrounded by such generous friends and clients is truly heartening.
    Thanksgiving 2017: We are more than a little in awe over this year’s response to providing the Rockford Rescue Mission with pies to serve on Thanksgiving. Together we provided 45 pies. To be surrounded by such generous friends and clients is truly uplifting. The Rockford Rescue Mission Director called on Monday stating that she was beginning to get anxious about having enough pies for Thanksgiving, and she could not thank us enough and reminded: Matthew 25-40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’.
  • The Superhero Center for Autism, is a non-profit organization offering support, education and resources for individuals with autism and other special needs and their families.  It is opening a building in the Rockford, Illinois area where kiddos with special needs can just be: be safe, be empowered, be supported and be themselves.
