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.
