Donor Spotlight

Hervey Family Fund

One day, about four years ago, a woman came into the ILACSD office to borrow some trash grabbers for a cleanup she had planned. Her experience with our staff, as well as her connection to the mission of ILACSD resulted in the first donation from the Hervey Family Fund. Since that day, the Hervey Family Fund continues to support ILACSD cleanup efforts, and every year, Mrs. Hervey comes into the office to pick up grabbers for her cleanups. Thanks to the Hervey Family Fund for making our cleanups possible!
