Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters will be receiving a $5000 grant from the Robert W. Leu Charitable Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois to support its Lunch Buddies program. The money will be used to ensure child safety and enhance the relationships between bigs and littles who are part of the program. Lunch Buddies is a school based montoring program. Volunteers meet with children once a week during the child's lunch period. Heart of Illinois Big Brothers Big Sisters serves 105 children in 18 local schools through the Lunch Buddies program.
