Join us for the 2019 Annual Community Luncheon! This year's event will focus on The Salvation Army Heartland Division's partnership with Midwest Food Bank. The program will include short videos highlighting both organizations, as well as a short awards ceremony to recognize deserving individuals and businesses. Program will begin at 11:45 a.m.
Echelon Peoria's president, Rachel Hammer, will receive the Young Leaders Award, in recognition of her leadership of Echelon over the past 2 years. Echelon Peoria's Dinner With Love partner, Firehouse Pizza of East Peoria, will receive the Pinnacle of Achievement Award. Firehouse was nominated not just for their partnership with The Army, but for all of the good they are doing in the community (see the news article below for more on their generosity during the TSA shutdown earlier this year). https://week.com/news/peoria-news/2019/01/21/firehouse-pizza-delivers-free-food-to-tsa-employees/
