A message from the IB Christmas HOPE organization: As we round the corner into another month of isolation and uncertainty due to COVID-19, we here at IB Christmas HOPE would like to help those in need within our IB Community in some small way. We will be offering a few household and food supplies for those that need a little help. If this is something you believe would benefit your household, please fill out the COVID-19 relief application on our website at http://www.IBChristmasHOPE.com by Monday, May 11, 2020. If you know of someone who does not have access to the internet, please have them call us at (309) 253-6993 by the deadline of Monday, May 11, 2020. Below are the facts you need to be aware of for participation of the COVID-19 basket: 1) You MUST reside within the Illini Bluffs School District to qualify. 2) This deadline is final – no exceptions - as we will only be purchasing for boxes on those who have completed the online application or called us. *We are at the mercy of the deliveries for the stores who are helping us and additional shopping would not be practicing the best stay-at-home guidelines for our workers. 3) The boxes are for pick-up only. *To ensure the safety of both the recipients and the workers no deliveries will be made. Please be sure you can make the commitment to pick your box up or have someone willing to pick-up your box prior to filling out the application. 4) Our projected pick-up date: *Saturday, May 23, 2020 *Please practice good socializing skills by wearing a mask at the time of pick-up. *Additional information will be communicated to the basket recipients.
