Ann's Helping Hands officially has place to call home

A year after losing their storefront, a nonprofit store has moved into its new place.

PORT BYRON, Ill. — A nonprofit organization has a new place to call home, after losing their storefront nearly a year before.

Ann's Helping Hands is a nonprofit that originally opened in an effort to serve the Riverdale School District.  Their owner, Ann McCarrell opened up shop in the 1990s, after seeing a need in the school district she worked at.

The lease at their Port Byron location at the edge of town expired and the building was torn down.

In mid-February of 2020, the nonprofit found a new home in the lower level of "Peace Lutheran Church" in Port Byron.
