IN THE NEWS: Illinois Valley to engage veterans with free yard cleanup

(Washington Times Reporter) One of The Fuller Center for Housing’s newest covenant partners, The Illinois Valley Fuller Center for Housing in Peoria, has truly hit the ground running. The group already has launched a busy Facebook page and website to publicize its efforts in the community — efforts targeted toward helping veterans with housing issues. One way they’re getting to know the veterans of the community they aim to help is a pair of free yard cleanup days for veterans during their "Joining Hands to Thank Veterans" event scheduled for Nov. 1-11. "We are so proud of the innovative work our Peoria team is doing to spread the word about their veterans programs," Fuller Center Director of U.S. Field Operations Kirk Lyman-Barner said. "By offering yard cleanups, veterans can call in to receive a little help and learn more about The Fuller Center. This is a very admirable and replicable model that all or our ministries can and should be doing."
