Thanks to a monetary gift from Rockford's First Presbyterian Church, Jeremiah Development will be able to better work toward revitalizing the residential area surrounding downtown Rockford.
The not-for-profit organization received a $75,259.97 gift from the church, which is also one of the organization's founders. The group sponsors a garden at the corner of Park and Court Street that is maintained by volunteers and helps feed neighborhood residents. It has also purchased and renovated a vacant home in the area that is now owner-occupied. The gift will help the group work toward additional area revitalization.
Along with Jeremiah Development, other organizations also recently received gifts from First Presbyterian Church, including:
