Monetary Donation for Peck Foundation repairs - Matching Funds Challenge

Your donations helped to repair the foundation of  the 180-year-old Peck house, level a badly-sloping floor, made the bathroom more accessible and added badly-needed storage space. 

However, a 180 year old house will always need additional expensive repairs in order to remain a viable historic landmark in Lombard. Your donation is greatly appreciated.

Thanks to a generous offer from anonymous members, any gift of at least $100 to the Peck Foundation Project will be matched, up to a total of $4000. Thank you!
