Tools for Change

Peoria, Illinois – Neon orange-colored stickers dot many homes on Peoria’s Southside, warning residents to fix their homes or face fines. Lawns go uncut.

In the midst of those issues is hope – and more importantly Robin Berry, a lifelong resident who asked the simple question: Why aren’t folks taking care of their properties?

The answer: No equipment. So Robin did what she does best; she rallied the community and launched a free tool lending library. And that’s not hope – that’s action. And it’s powered by Robin.
