Peoria Friendship House Dealing With Ongoing Vandalism

The Peoria Friendship House is dealing with its fourth vandalism case in four months.
PEORIA – A Peoria non-profit is taking a devastating hit. The Friendship House is dealing with its fourth case of vandalism in four months.

The Friendship House filed a police report Wednesday for three stolen car batteries. That report comes after an attack on its school bus, large yellow truck, and pick-up truck.

CEO and President Laura Clark said it’s costing the community center, which operates on donations, several thousand dollars.

She said police have no leads and the facility is left without working vehicles. “We can't continue to do what we're doing if we don't have these vehicles. Our concern is we have no other place to park these vehicles. We have always trusted that this parking lot is a safe space.”

The Friendship House is looking for some help. If you can help fix the vehicles, offer a space to keep them, or help with the expenses, please give them a call at (309) 671-5200.
