"These are organizations that are truly carrying their communities through this pandemic. I'm so very grateful for their partnership."

The second round grant recipients in southern Illinois are Family Counseling Center, Shawnee Health Service, the SIU Foundation and The Poshard Foundation for Abused Children.
