2019 OVER THE EDGE

Over The Edge Peoria is an annual event supporting the Peoria Friendship House mission to offer programs and ministry to individuals and families who need it most. This year, about 65 of us rappelled down the Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette to raise money to support our programs and services. 

The 2019 Over The Edge was held on June 1st and we raised about $70,000.

2018 Stuff A Bus

This was our 31st Annual Stuff-A-Bus food drive to benefit Friendship House. Last year, we collected over 10 Tons of non perishable food items for our food pantry. This year we collected nearly 10.5 Tons of food.

For the past 30 years, CityLink has hosted the Stuff-A-Bus food drive to help eliminate hunger in Peoria.  With a long partnership with Kroger to collect enough food to stuff a classic CityLink bus, the donations collected during the annual food drive benefit the food pantry at the Peoria Friendship House.  Since January of this year, the Peoria Friendship House food pantry has provided approximately 50,000 meals to families and individuals who are dealing with hunger in Peoria.

2018 Maka Maka

In Hawaiian, “maka maka” means “friend.” At Maui Jim, it means a 3-mile fun run/1.5 mile walk to benefit the Peoria Friendship House. The 15th annual Maui Jim Maka Maka Run/Walk took place on Thursday, August 16th at the Maui Jim corporate headquarters on North Allen Road. All proceeds from this event benefit the Peoria Friendship House.

Over The Edge Peoria is an annual event supporting the Peoria Friendship House mission to offer programs and ministry to individuals and families who need it most. For the past 2 years, many of us have rappelled down the Chase building to raise money to support our programs and services.

Rock The Roof

When the President & CEO of Peoria Friendship House moved to Peoria in September, he went directly to the roof, and he has been living there ever since. The fundraising goal that Robert Montgomery set was $500,000. The idea is to bring awareness to the programs and services we provide to the community.
