Representing the Lincoln Woman’s Club, Patti Schonauer presented the check to Joe Schaler of the Central Illinois Veterans Commission (CIVC).

Founded in 2018, it is the mission of the Central Illinois Veterans Commission to provide Central Illinois veterans with the tools and support systems to enable them to move forward to obtain permanent sustainable housing.

CIVIC has completed the construction of five homes that have been provided to local qualifying veterans in Lincoln.

At least two more homes are planned for 2024, and more in the future.

The LWC incorporated August 22, 1927, and continues to own and meet at the building.

Currently, the club has approximately 70 members and works throughout the year to raise money to support local organizations and projects that improve life for the residents of our community.
