Community Outreach

SRYC Charities strives to give back to the community in a number of ways. Staying true to our mission “to provide community outreach, education and recreation throughout the Illinois River Valley,” we have our flagship annual community event, a grant program, and an Elementary STEM Trunk to support local teachers.

SRYC Charities and its team of volunteers provide community outreach, education  and recreation throughout the Illinois River Valley by:

  • Safely providing recreational opportunities to individuals with special needs
  • Hosting the annual Ron Robb Memorial Special People Cruise
  • Connecting individuals with nature
  • Providing ecological education programs
  • Cultivating environmental stewardship
  • Supporting water conservation efforts
  • Helping to protect natural resources
