Turning Point radiothon

To the Editor:

Catalent Pharma Solutions, Snap-On Tools, Guardian Electric and Rita Corporation hosted a “Stuff-a-Truck” event in July to raise funds for Turning Point.

These events allowed employees to bring donations of used clothing and small household goods and drop them into a truck in their parking lot.

Turning Point is incredibly grateful for the companies and employees who took the time to coordinate this event.

Each company and employee played an important role in helping us begin to celebrate the annual radiothon Take a Stand for Turning Point broadcast live by Star 105.5. This event will be Aug. 15 and 16 at the Crystal Lake Sam’s Club. You will be hearing of more events leading up to the main celebration.

This is the time of year that we ask our neighbors to listen to our stories and celebrate the amazing women, children and men who work hard to achieve peaceful, nonviolent futures. Many of you tell us at Turning Point that you wish there was no violence. We agree.

This is the time that strong members of our community come together to support those who need our help. All of us have been touched by domestic violence. Together, we can stop the violence one person and one family at a time.

We look forward to seeing you at 5 a.m. Aug. 15 until 5 p.m. Aug. 16 at Sam’s Club. To arrange for an advance donation, contact Turning Point at 815-338-8081 or simply go online to and click “donate.”
