HERRIN (WSIL) -- News 3 WSIL has partnered with the Southern Illinois Community Foundation to spotlight local non-profit organizations in our Giving Tuesday series.
This week's featured charitable organization is the Herrin House of Hope. Founded in 2013, Herrin House of Hope provides a number of services to those in need. These programs include a food pantry, sit-down soup kitchen, thrift store, free GED classes, and a Free Summer Meal program for kids.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, they saw a 200% increase in free meals given out to the people of Southern Illinois. In 2020 alone, the Herrin House of Hope served up over 70,000 free meals to those in need.
