Annie Eads, community relations director for Addington Place of Edwardsville, is the community relations liaison for the Madison County chapter of Little Black Book. “I reached out to Sara at Main Street because I knew they had some needs and asked what their biggest need was. That happened to be their nutrition program, so we made it happen.”

“For our meal program, we try to deliver fresh fruit and vegetables to our clients throughout the year, and this donation allows us to help with that and any other things they might need to accompany their meals, we’ve had to cancel our annual trivia night for the last two years and that usually brings in about $20,000 to $25,000,” Berkbigler said.

” We are a local chapter, but it was founded in Wentzville Missouri in 2012, all the chapters consist of Missouri and Madison County. We are the newest chapter. We have 400 members in all the chapters. Our main things are to give back to the community and we do fundraisers.” Lisa Webb President of Little Black Book said
