ROCKFORD (WREX) — One Rockford organization that works with the Coronado Haskell Neighborhood got a big boost Thursday.
Jeremiah Development receives a $15,000 check from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. The money will support the group's LOVE Rockford and Jeremiah CARES events in 2020. Both events connect undeserved residents to agencies that help with housing, health care and other resources.
"Every city has to develop from its core, and the core of Rockford has been neglected for far too long, and we're trying to rectify that," said Jeremiah Development Board President Greg Cox.
Jeremiah Development has their annual fundraiser dinner on April 25.
