Have an idea for a community health program for Rockford?

The Post Cereal company is offering a $25,000 grant to communities that have a creative, actionable and impactful proposal to improve the health of their residents. Examples are a greenmarket, building a playground or offering nutrition consultations.
The top 10 finalists will be featured on at the beginning of June where visitors can vote for their favorites.

Fairfield Community Closet Needs Your Help

The Fairfield Community Closet located at 404 N 2nd will be having shorter hours of operation in May and June. This organization offers free clothing to every one of all ages. If this service is not being utilized it may close the doors in July. If you or someone you know needs gently used (or sometimes new) clothes please stop in and see what they have. There may be play outfits for growing children and work clothes for the hard workers in the family for example.
