Macomb helping those who provide a helping hand

Rich Egger

The city of Macomb is giving grants to a dozen non-profit organizations that have a history of providing food, shelter, and clothing to those in need.

“All of the organizations are doing great work and we wanted to support them moving forward,” said John Bannon, Community Development Coordinator.

The groups are:

  • CASA of West Central Illinois
  • Genesis Garden
  • Giving Gardens of First Presbyterian Church of Macomb
  • McDonough County Habitat for Humanity
  • The Samaritan Well
  • St. George’s Clothes Closet
  • United Way ROE Homelessness
  • Western Illinois Regional Council
  • Loaves & Fishes
  • Salvation Army
  • Good Food Collaborative
  • First Christian Church

Each non-profit is receiving $4,200 from the city. The funding comes from the American Rescue Plan Act.
