Helping Rockford Rescue Mission

The Help Holly Help Grant Challenge Ran until 10/15/2016 and helped raise over $11,000.00 for Rockford Rescue Mission. The Grant Challenge not only raised money, but also raised awareness in the community.

Holly Geraci’s Help Holly Help Grant Challenge helped raise over $5,500.00 to Rockford Rescue Mission. The Grant Challenge lasted approximately one month and donations varied from $25.00 to up to $1,000.00.

Holly Geraci and Peter Francis Geraci matched the over $5,500.00 donated with their own money. The total donated to the Rescue Mission was over $11,000.00. But more important is the awareness raised.

The Grant Challenge was created to help raise money and awareness for the Rockford Rescue Mission. The Rockford Rescue Mission helps feed and shelter thousands of individuals per year. Without the Rockford Rescue Mission, thousands of people in Illinois would be homeless and hungry.


Every month, the Mission provides nearly 13,000 meals and 4,900 nights of lodging for men, women and children. The needs are so great in Rockford, but with faithful prayers and financial support, we can continue to offer food, clothing, shelter and long-term life-recovery programs for those who are homeless, hungry and hurting.
