The Knell Group is excited to roll out our new campaign for 2018 titled " We will work for". Simply put, the goal is to help area organizations. Each month we will announce a new organization that will receive a portion of each closed sale that month. At the conclusion of that month we will share with the organization through a monetary donation or through goods if the organization chooses.
This month, we are highlighting South Side Mission.
Started in 1925, the South Side Mission has grown to provide youth ministry, a homeless shelter, large food pantry, outreach programs and career training ministries to over 15,000 Peoria residents primarily in the 61605 zip code.
According to southsidemission.org :
The Mission primarily serves the residents of the 61605 zip code, one of the 100 poorest zip codes in the country.
61605 is home to 16,000 people, 49% living below the poverty level compared to 17% for the county.
40% of the population is white, 60% is African American.
There are 310 city blocks and 7396 housing units.
The median age is 30, average household income is $19,422.
The Mission accomplishes this with the help of over 38,000 volunteer hours annually.
The annual budget is $4 million, supported completely by donations, we receive no government or United Way funding.
So if you are in the market to BUY OR SELL a home please consider partnering with The Knell Group for your real estate needs. It's a great way to give back to the city we love.
We hope to hear from you soon!
