Former director recognized for decades of service


New building named after former director

DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA)– An organization is recognizing a man who dedicated 50 years of his own life to help it grow. Jerry Pelz is the former Director of Northeast Community Fund. They provide things like food, clothes, and resources for families in need. After years in their old building they outgrew that space and built a larger one.

The new building is named after Pelz. Pelz still volunteers with the organization part time.
