Central Illinois Cub, River City Bears fundraising for Midwest Food Bank


PEORIA — The River City Bears club in Peoria and Justin Reeves, the current Central Illinois Bear, are holding a holiday fundraiser for Midwest Food Bank.

From the GoFundMe page:

My name is Justin Reeves and I’m the reining Mr. Central Illinois Cub.  This Christmas season myself and the River City Bears would like to reach out to our community and help those in need. So, it’s my pleasure to announce that from now until December 15th we will be hosting a dry/canned food drive.  Due to our group being spread over the entire Central Illinois are we’ve decided to handle the drive a bit differently.   We are providing a link to a corresponding Go Fund Me campaign. This way if you wish to donate and don’t exactly want to drive to Peoria with canned goods you don’t have to. Once the drive ends on the 15th all funds will be used to purchase goods for the final donation to Midwest Food Bank here in Peoria.  Of course, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly.  I’d also like to thank you all in advance for any help that you can provide. Lets make this drive a huge success.
