[June 18, 2008]  Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois, formerly CIEDC, has been serving central Illinois for over 40 years. Staff member Paula Gregg of Lincoln has been part of the Community Action tradition for 30 years. She was recently recognized at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in Atlanta, Ga.

InsuranceThe conference is the world's largest gathering of volunteer and service leaders. This year's theme, "The Urgency of Now!" was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King and was a call to action for a new generation of civic leaders. Speakers included former President Jimmy Carter.

Gregg is the director of the Community Action Foster Grandparent program in DeWitt, Fulton, Logan, Macon, Mason, Menard and Piatt counties. Foster Grandparents are individuals age 60 and over who thrive on direct interaction with children and believe they can make a difference in their lives. Income-eligible individuals receive a modest stipend to help offset the costs of volunteering. Interested volunteers should contact Gregg at 217-732-2159, ext. 237.

"We're very lucky to have Paula on our team. She is dedicated to the program, her Foster Grandparents and the children they serve," said Angela Stoltzenburg, executive director of the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois.

Community Action is a private, nonprofit organization serving the low-income and senior populations of six central Illinois counties. For more information visit
