November Sponsors of the Month

The University of Illinois hosted Treasure Chess Scholastic, a chess tournament for K-12 students on October 22, 2017.  This annual event raises some proceeds for charity and Family Service received $150.  Many thanks to Rachel A. Schechter, their Director for organizing the event.  Thank you for impacting children in so many positive ways!

Marine Bank hosts Jean’s Days where employees can wear jeans to work for a small donation that is contributed to a charitable organization of the employee’s choosing.  We’re very grateful the employees chose Family Service in October and thank them for their $55 gift.


 

If you have a couple of spare hours a week, we could really use your help!

Family Service needs more volunteer drivers. 

We can reimburse your gas mileage. We order a cab when we don’t have volunteers, and pay half the cab fare (MTD pays the other half for those with a DASH pass).  These costs are becoming more than we can afford.

Call Terry Goode at 217-352-0099. 

Have more money than time? 

Your tax-deductible donation to Family Service Senior Transportation will also get older adults where they need to go.


  Senior Task Force

Are you interested in learning about or being a local voice for senior issues?  Then join us on the third Wednesday of each month from 9:09-10:09 am at the Champaign Public Library on Green St.  This collaborative group is sponsored by Family Service and Health Alliance and provides timely topics, informed presenters, and networking opportunities each  meeting.

The next meeting will be January 17, 2018 at 9:09 am at the Champaign Public Library.

Join us for a discussion about the future and direction of Senior Task Force.  Bring your ideas!

Note: Due to the holidays, there will be NO meeting in November or December.
