In 2014, the local PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) was running low on certain supplies. After talking to Paul Rilett it was determined they could use the following items: Coffee, Milk, Eggs, Ground Meat, Sugar, Lettuce, Razors, Deodorant, HE Laundry Soap, Paper Plates, Drink Mixes and Butter. In this picture you will see the first donation dropped off to PADS and Paul Rilett. As you can see by the smile on Paul's face, he was thrilled with our first donation.
PADS is always in need of supplies, so If you would like to donate items to PADS at any time and cannot take them to PADS directly, please contact Theresa at 217-254-6699.
Our Club is also responsible for cooking 1 night a month at PADS. At the beginning of each year we make a calendar and fill the slots for our nights with members and other employees at CCI. We cook on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, so if you are interested in cooking at PADS, give us a call and we will provide you with additional information and a contact for PADS.
Our 7th Annual Cookout/Picnic will held on a date TBD. We are hoping for a great turnout again this year and more details will be shared as they are finalized.

However, when we do get dates set, please consider joining us at 5:15 pm at 3300 Moultrie (former Blue Bird Diner Area) and help us make our Earth more beautiful. Bring your gloves and we will provide safety vests.
