EAST PEORIA, IL – The East Peoria Community Foundation received $15,000 to address hunger in East Peoria, as a result of the COVID-19 virus and resulting economic crisis. These funds are part of Caterpillar Foundation’s $8.5 million commitment to remediate the impact of global COVID-19. Their generosity is making a huge impact right here at the birthplace of Caterpillar Inc.
EAST PEORIA - A reading garden will likely be the first piece of development in the triangular piece of land known as the Civic Plaza Park adjacent to the Fondulac District Library.
The Fondulac District Library owns a rectangular piece of the 1.7 acres in the Civic Plaza, and the city owns the rest. The goal is to keep the area a green space, which the city would maintain.
