The Central Illinois Food Bank last week received an an anonymous donation of $500,000. Public Relations Manager Beth Wakefield says that they’re working on a plan so that money can help serve the most people in need within the Central Illinois Food Bank service area.
Wakefield says that they’re so thankful for the donation.
That’s not the only donation that the Central Illinois Food Bank has received, according to Wakefield. A Springfield based author, Teressa Shelton, is donating the proceeds from her book, “The Sergeant's Daughter” to the Central Illinois Food Bank and Habitat For Humanity.
Wakefield went on to discuss how you can pickup Shelton’s book on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble.
Beth Wakefield was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
