NEVER ALONE

We hope you enjoy this video we made showing how people in Peoria, IL have been impacted by COVID-19. (Turn your volume on, you might like the song, called "Never Alone". Seems fitting to the times) While the video doesn’t ignore the current situation, the intention was to offer hope and inspiration, as we can all use some. Stay healthy everybody. This COVID-19 video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/k1JCBiQfPQo Please don't be bashful and hit that SHARE button for others! Please also consider helping these organizations out. One of the listed names, on a much smaller scale is Kelli Martin, who has a porch pantry on 1122 Ellis in West Bluff area in Peoria and can always use more donations. Reach out to her, her pantry is open from 9am everyday till dark. That's a hero! Special thanks to everyone that helped with this video; Molly Crusen Bishop, Kelli Martin, @ Jobs Partnership (JP Participants), Fox Pub and Cafe, Gina Kennedy, Peoria Grown, Southside Community Center, Charles Lindbergh Middle School, Peoria Police Department, Lee Hall Dream Center Peoria, Positivibez, Just Dance home of Water Street Dance Co.

#DragonsLightTheNight

Via Pekin Community High School District 303: Tonight, along with our brethren from the Mid-Illini Conference as well as many other schools across IL, we will light up Memorial Stadium at 8:20pm (20:20) for 20 minutes to recognize and honor our #DragonSeniors. It will also be a show of support for everyone on the frontlines fighting this crisis. Please remember that in order to comply with state guidelines; the stadium will not be accessible. We ask that you show your support by turning on an outside light at your home for these 20 minutes. Take a picture of you and your family lighting up the night and share it on social media with the hashtag #DragonsLightTheNight Pictures and video footage of the stadium, including a live stream on Facebook Live, will be taken and posted on our social media platforms.
