  • Ameren Supports the HHoH

    Ameren Visits the House of Hope! & donates $5264 and over 2000 items for the Food Pantry!

    Ameren Illinois division director Ray Riddle explained the significance of their visit.

    “This organization treats people as people. It’s not a soup line. It’s come in and let us take care of you,” Riddle said, pointing out that patrons sit at their own tables and are waited on by smiling volunteers.

    “When I walked in, my heart dropped looking at the passion of what these folks do,” Riddle said. “We appreciate everything you guys are doing.”

    Ameren has in the past given out checks to charitable organizations. This year, it decided to try something new. At its Marion field office, the company announced a food drive with a twist — for every item of shelf-stable food donated, Ameren would match it with $1.

The Dream

 

 
Serving the most needy people in our community is a big mission that requires a central location big enough for our ministry and equipped with a kitchen, offices, and a room for meetings and lunch.
 
After months of searching we found the perfect spot.  The old Lombard Restaurant at 112  N 14th Street.  It has a well equipped commercial kitchen and plenty of space for all of the work we envision.  Plus it is located in the center of town and accessible by all who would benefit from our services.
 
Art Lenzini and Pete Bondioli owned the building and were excited about our dream of making it a hub for community help and volunteerism, so they worked with us to turn it into the new home for the Herrin House of Hope..   
 
We've renovated the building for months and are now into our Third Year of Operation!
