Local News

ROCKTON, Ill. (WTVO) — More than a dozen local organizations come together to teach residents what resources they have to offer.

It was for the first ever Stateline Non-Profit Night.

The Hononegah Woman’s Club hosted the event at the Greater Rockton Community Center, and 16 other organizations from the area took part.

Some of the non-profits came from Rockford, Roscoe, Rockton and Beloit.

Organizers hope the event inspires others to volunteer at some of the organizations.

“The purpose of us being here is to just be able to get our name out to the public because there’s so many people that need assistance and don’t even know we’re here and we’ve been going for many years,” said Shirley Hood Breast Cancer Foundation, Ann Love.
