Pat’s Kids is a totally non profit group set up to work through “The Poshard Foundation”
to insure that sexually and physically abused children get a visit from Santa.
EVERY penny of EVERY donation goes to the children.
We are all volunteer and we have no overhead, nor do we ever reimburse ourselves
for expenses (its part of our donation). Listen to WUEZ –Magic95.1fm and find out

Gum Drops, NFP provides a weekend backpack of child-friendly food to help enhance the quality of life for at-risk children throughout Southern Illinois. This program removes barriers to academic success for these at-risk children. It is very likely that these at-risk children will endure lifelong consequences as a result of having limited or no food. HUNGER DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE.

House of Hope
The Herrin House of Hope seeks to help the poor and needy in the Herrin area chart a new course for their lives and find hope for the future. It is a cooperative Christian ministry of Herrin's churches, businesses and ordinary people committed to giving hope for those who are struggling in life. We follow the example of Jesus who came with good news for the poor and freedom for the oppressed (Luke 4:18).
