Angels of Hope has been awarded grant funds as the Community Foundation of Grundy County continues to celebrate a special anniversary.

Angels of Hope is a recipient of a $1,000 grant celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Community Foundation of Grundy County.

The mission of Angels of Hope is to serve as a beacon of hope for those suffering the emotional and physical absence of a child, says Community Foundation program director Devan Gagliardo.

Angels of Hope was nominated to receive a grant because, according to the nominator, “the women behind the organization are literally angels on earth and their dedication to the community goes above and beyond.”

If you would like to donate to Angels of Hope, checks can be sent to 265 S. Richards Street Coal City, IL 60416.
