So honored to know these women and the unbelievable work they do! Thank you again WNIJ. You can view the article on WNIJ's website here "Yesterday, we brought you a story about Rockford’s Club Blue, which, after five short years, will surpass the $1 million mark in grants and donations to Rockford-area organizations. Now, we’re going to hear from recipients of Club Blue grants and what it meant for them to receive that money. Jane Armitage, Vice President of Development for Remedies Renewing Lives, tells us about the grant they received. “We received a generous grant from Club Blue Foundation to build the children’s playroom in our new shelter,” she said, “and what it means to the children is, while they’re living in shelter or coming to group meetings, they have a place to go, be themselves, have fun and to heal” Dola Gregory is founder/CEO of Rock House Kids. She explained that Club Blue’s giving isn’t restricted to monetary donations. After receiving an initial $15,000 grant, Club Blue provided another $10,000 for playground equipment -- and that was just the start of the relationship. “The relationship is whatever else we needed,” Gregory said. “We had 80 kids that didn’t have winter boots, and it was snowing and blowing; and we called and said that, and I don’t know how many of those women went shopping, but they went shopping and coming in the next day bringing boots after boots for our kids. That meant so much to us.
Thank You WNIJ for telling our story and helping us to call on the people of Rockford to Take Care of our Children in Need!read more
