Christmas in April-Peoria, Inc.
February 6, 2011

From the first time I helped this group rehab the home of an elderly cancer survivor, I was hooked! I am still amazed at the amount of home repairs this group can accomplish through sheer volunteerism with no paid staff and no cost to the homeowners. As a volunteer, I derive great personal satisfaction when I see a homeowner's face light up at the end of the work day, often with tears of appreciation. As aboard member, I am in awe of the numbers of volunteers mobilized each year, and am proud of the financial stewardship that limits administrative expense.
