The Farm Credit Illinois Lawrenceville regional office recently made a $1,300 investment in the Lawrenceville Resource Center to provide assistance to cancer patients during October in honor of breast cancer awareness month. The funds will provide wigs, gas cards, and care packages to patients. The Lawrenceville Resource Center serves Crawford, Lawrence, and Richland Counties.
In 2017, FCI invested more than $270,000 in youth, community, and ag literacy initiatives throughout its 60-county territory.
