turner 10142021SPRINGFIELD –State Senator Doris Turner (D-Springfield) attended two events in the 48th district Wednesday where she provided more than 400 meals to community members. 

Turner first attended a senior ministry event at the Salvation Army Clear Lake Corps in Springfield, providing 200 meals alongside members of the Greater All Nations Tabernacle Church of God in Christ Senior Luncheon. She then visited the Boys & Girls Club of Decatur, where she and her staff distributed 200 meals to families dropping off their children.

“Many children and families across central Illinois wake up every morning not knowing where their next warm meal will come from,” Turner said. “Today we didn’t just provide hundreds of meals, we provided hundreds of smiles. I am grateful I can go home this evening with the confidence that our neighbors have food on their tables.”

Turner will continue to stay connected to the community and invites organizations interested in partnering with her to contact her office at 217-782-0228 or by email at www.senatordoristurner.com.
