Peoria Charter delivers busload of food


URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — Peoria Charter donated a busload of food to Cunningham Children’s home.

That food will go to Circle Academy families who need the extra support. Cunningham usually donates food to those families every year, but the bus company decided to step in and help.

Charles Hoge, Principal of Circle Academy, says it puts a smile on his face seeing the smiles it gives the families.

“A lot of the families do have pretty significant needs,” Hoge said. “Most of our children are receiving free lunches, so this food blessing for them will be able to really help them through the holiday season.”

Peoria Charter got food donations from their employees and community members. Their goal is to continue giving to local organizations every year.
