[April 29, 2010]  Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois is gearing up for National Community Action Month, an annual observance in May that recognizes Community Action's efforts to help low-income people. The public is invited to attend an open house at 1800 Fifth St. in Lincoln on Wednesday, May 5, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

HardwareA free lunch of hot dogs, chips, cake and punch will be provided. Participants will be entered into a drawing for four $25 gas cards.

"Community Action's work to provide assistance to the poor and elderly in our service area is an ongoing effort," said Angela Stoltzenburg, executive director. "The open houses we are holding throughout our service areas are an opportunity to promote the services we offer and celebrate our successes."

Community Action agencies across the country will have events to mark the occasion.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois has been helping people and changing lives in the six-county service area of Fulton, DeWitt, Logan, Mason, Menard and Piatt counties for over 40 years.

"Community Action has turned hope into reality for thousands of low-income individuals and families," Stoltzenburg said. Community Action enables local residents to help themselves and, in turn, help others. We take pride in what we do and are honored to celebrate National Community Action Month with the entire community."

Questions regarding the open house should be directed to Cyndi Campbell or Kathy Shepherd at 732-2159, ext. 225.

Community Action is a private, nonprofit organization. For more information about the agency, visit or become a fan on Facebook for regular updates.
