    Welcome to The Round Table Project!  

    We are a donation program spearheaded by Local 6099 to provide Peoria Public School students with hygiene, food, clothing, and other essential items as the need arises so that they can be successful.  Our main supply inventory is housed at Richwoods High School with smaller inventories set up at another 16 PPS schools. Any student who has a need may contact any staff member to request items.  Requests for items are confidential.  All of our inventory is received through DONATIONS from our community.  Items that The Round Table normally stocks are shampoos, conditioners, body wash/soap, deodorant, brushes, combs and other hygiene items. Also The Round Table stocks laundry detergent, dryer sheets, and miscellaneous household supplies when donated. We also have a supply of food items and some clothing and shoes.  We are continually seeking donations from our community.  Please consider donating to our worthy cause!
    Monetary donations can be made out to the 6099 Round Table and dropped off at Richwoods High School or mailed to AFT-IFT  Attn:  The Round Table  733 SW Washington St. Peoria, IL  61602
