Shoe Drive to Help Provide Safe Water (Sat. Aug 29, 2015 6:00 pm)

Nearly 750 million people lack access to safe drinking water, according to a 2014 study released by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. That's more than 1 out of every 10 people who inhabit this earth. "Of these, almost a quarter (173 million) rely on untreated surface water," the study says, "and over 90% live in rural areas."

 

That's why, for the fourth consecutive year, St. Ann's WATCH program, in partnership with The Iona Group and Float, are co-sponsoring a shoe drive from August 1-31 throughout central Illinois to help provide clean drinking water for those in need.

 

All shoes collected - flip-flops, sandals, tennis shoes, clogs, dress shoes, garden shoes, etc. - will be donated to WaterStep, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help many of the world's problems by providing access to clean water. WaterStep then sells the shoes to an exporter, and the funds raised from the sale of shoes go to WaterStep's work of providing safe water solutions to people in third-world communities and disaster-hit areas. They do this by providing their own water treatment systems, offering health and hygiene education, and training people who go into areas with unclean water about how to do water projects.

 

The exporter then sells the shoes to entrepreneurs from developing countries to provide a sustainable living for their families. Additionally, shoes improve residents' overall health by protecting them from abrasions, parasites and mites. Here at home, closets are cleaned out and landfill waste is reduced.

 

Donating new or used shoes to WaterStep helps provide a sustainable supply of safe drinking water for one person, one family, and one community at a time. Just a few minutes spent collecting old shoes from closets, basements or garages can make a real difference - a difference that ultimately saves lives.

 

This year, we have an aggressive goal of 30,000 pairs of shoes to support WaterStep's mission. Since 2012, with the support of the local community, nearly 50,000 pairs of shoes have been donated to this worthwhile endeavor.

Chillicothe Park District to celebrate 100th anniversary of historic clubhouse

 

The Chillicothe Park District will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its historic clubhouse with open house festivities at Shore Acres Park in Chillicothe.

 

The clubhouse was constructed on the bank of the Illinois River in 1915 as the home of the Peoria Automobile Club.

 

A 10:00 a.m. opening ceremony will kick off a day of activities highlighting the clubhouse and park history. They include an antique auto cruise-in, music by the Central Illinois Banjo Club, the Pride of Peoria Barbershop Quartets, and Illinois Valley Central (IVC) School District students. Food vendors, building tours, people in period dress, children activities, and historical displays also will be part of the celebration.

 

“This is a great way to celebrate this historic building and the park,” said Kevin Yates, executive director of the Chillicothe Park District. “There’s a rich history with this facility – with the Peoria Auto Club, then as the North Shore Country Club, as a private club and for the past several decades, as headquarters and grounds of the Chillicothe Park District. The clubhouse is one of the few buildings in the area on the National Register of Historic Places.”

 

Shore Acres Park and the clubhouse offer a scenic view of the Illinois River. The park has been a destination point over the years for steamboats carrying people for day-long picnics, for high-school proms, family reunions, athletic events, weddings, and countless club and family gatherings.

 

In addition to the distinctive clubhouse, Shore Acres Park today includes a water park, basketball courts, ball diamond, river walk, tennis courts, picnic pavilions, and Frisbee golf course.

The 13th Annual 2015 Mark Linder Walk for the Mind will be held along the Peoria riverfront at the RiverPlex. Mark Linder Walk for the Mind is a one mile walk to raise awareness of brain tumors and their impact on patients, family members and friends, and to raise funds for brain tumor research. The first Walk for the Mind in 2003 attracted over 150 walkers and raised more than $12,000 for research programs. While Mark Linder died in 2005 at age 31 from brain cancer, the Walk for the Mind continues and to date has raised nearly $430,000 for research.

 

We are pleased to announce Eric “Hoovey” Elliott is our Honorary Chairman for 2015 Mark Linder Walk for the Mind. Eric Hoovey Elliott was a young boy with a very promising basketball career until a potentially fatal illness threatened to take it all. Wanting to inspire others, Jeff (Eric’s father) wrote a book about his son’s amazing comeback called “Rebounding From Death’s Door”. Eric’s story and his miraculous comeback has now been made into a movie called “Hoovey.” Eric is from Central Illinois (Olympia High School, Carl Sandburg College, Illinois State University) and now lives in Bloomington, Illinois.

 

Registration is available the day of the Walk or can be done online.

 

Registration starts at 7:30 a.m., and the Walk begins at 9:30 a.m. Brain Tumor Survivors are free. Walkers $20, children under 10 $10.

Bibles, Sunday School materials, Bible Reference books, Christian books, Christian magazines and Tracts, Christian CD's and DVD's are all packed by catagory and sent to 3rd world countries.
