To improve the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities and their families of Woodford County and the surrounding areas.
It's that time for us once again and we invite all to attend our 6th annual Italian Feast Fundraiser, Saturday, May 4th at the Eureka Bible Church, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
If you've never attended one of our IFF's (as we call it), then you absolutely must join us for this great event! We chose Avanti's once again to supply our array of fabulous pasta, sauces, salad and bread and we'll be calling on local families and friends of ADDWC to donate baked goods for desserts (and you do NOT want to miss those! Yum!).
This year our very own Ben Rudolph will be gracing us with his phenomenal piano and voice abilities and a new addition - we'll be having a balloon-artist from Unique Twists ready to make balloon creations for children and adults alike! We will also have our staple silent auction and raffle to participate in, complete with fabulous donations from local businesses.
So don't hesitate to give us a ring and let us know how many you'd like to bring to our feast! Ticket prices are as follows:
Children (12&under) $5
All children under 3 eat free!
Don't want to wait? Call Kaleena at 309-467-3015 ext. 103 and get your tickets today! We can't wait to see you there!
We wanted to remind everyone that we are partnering with Ameren Illinois for their recycling of residential fridges and freezers. You will receive $50 and we will get $10 when you use our Group ID# RR12-1019. We had previously announced this program back in August and now we are starting to see some referral bonus trickling in. Thanks for supporting recycling!
Due to lack of interest, we have decided to cancel our Feb. 16th 'Helpful Hearts Trivia Night'.
We want to thank everyone who had a hand in helping us get the word out and worked to attempt to make this evening possible. But do not fret! We will continue to work on future fundraising events and will keep all our gracious supporters posted. Thank you!
ADDWC is partnering with Advocates for Access to have Woodford County residents come check out services provided by them. The main focus of these open dates will be for their "Amplified Phone" program. They will be at our Moody facility in Eureka on the 3rd Wednesday of every month starting in February from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Just to give you an idea of all that gets done here at ADDWC, Midwest Fiber gives us the tools on their website to calculate just how much poundage (more like tons!) of materials we end up passing along to them.
Here's a visual comparison of our 2011 and 2012 numbers.
We want to especially thank Midwest Fiber for their fantastic partnership and dedication to helping keep our environment clean. Check out their website at www.midwest-fiber.com.
No Rest for the ADDWC Vocational Crew! We just completed a record breaking 2012 with a whopping 695.01 tons of material diverted from the landfill! This is a 116.73 ton increase from 2011!
Materials accepted are; office paper, newspaper, magazines, books (both soft and hard-backed), plastic food grade containers (#1-#7), aluminum cans, tin cans and cardboard. AND REMEMBER - we are unable to recycle plastic bags and styrofoam.
We also recycle electronics, except for full-size appliances (stoves, full refrigerators, etc.) and anything containing freon.
Effective 01.29.2013, ADDWC is happy to announce that we will now be accepting tin cans at the Moody location only!
Did you know ADDWC hosts 24 hour drop off sites in five communities throughout Woodford County? They are located in Eureka, Goodfield, Metamora, Minonk, and Washburn.
Did you know ADDWC offers pick-up services for Woodford County businesses for a nominal fee? There are nearly fifty business pick-ups each week currently!
Why is it important to sort when using our drop off locations?
When using an ADDWC recycling drop off location, you will notice signs instructing what materials to place in each bin. We encourage people to make a conscious effort to sort the material accordingly. This helps us to work efficiently and keep labor costs down, in an effort to see more return for our product. This money can then be used to pay our individuals as well as assist our program in purchasing necessary equipment needed to help our agency succeed.
We are anxiously awaiting word form DCEO to find out whether we will receive a grant towards the purchase of a new route truck. The one route truck we currently own has upwards of 300,000 miles on it. We don't just stay put!
One of our individuals recently passed his forklift certification class through Goodwill Inc. He is currently gaining experience and further training through ADDWC and will soon be given a letter of recommendation to take with him in his search for a forklift driving position! Congratulations T.R.! Anyone hiring?
Another of our individuals is continuing to help ADDWC give back to the community by volunteering at Washington Christian Village every Friday. He is in charge of cleaning the front dining area from top to bottom and does a tremendous job! Thank you B.Z. for being such an example of true community; and thank you Washington Christian Village for the partnership and opportunity!
February 23rd - Guy's Night at the Peoria Rivermen game! Thank you TCRC for the vouchers!
March 12th - Access the March Madness Experience - Thank you to HISRA!
