Giving Power to Adolescents (GPA) wins                                 Shoulder to the Wheel Award The Rock Falls Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual awards dinner on Thursday, February 26, 2015.  GPA is honored to have won the Shoulder to the Wheel award.  Congratulations to all youth  who have worked so hard for this award and thank you to all who have supported GPA along the way!         Sterling Township Participates in the Summit of Hope The Summit of Hope held in Whiteside County on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at the Harvest Time Bible Church in Rock Falls was a great success.  The Summit is designed to bring the community together and gather all the resources available under one roof.  The sea of red Summit of Hope shirts worn by agency members made the statement we do care, you can make it and live the life you have always dreamed of filled with happiness and prosperity.  Township participated in the Summit of Hope and shared information regarding General Assistance, Family Advocacy and other programs and services we provide.  Providing a one stop environment gave individuals the opportunity to obtain the necessary assistance to move past the barriers which are now preventing them from success. Through a community expo of services and support we were able to both supply and encourage those re-entering into society with the tools they need to become crime free responsible members of society.  Follow us on Facebook Youth Day GPA worked hard and put forth a great deal of effort on the Youth Day 2015 Event which was held on July 11, 2015 at Centennial Park in Rock Falls. The comradery priceless!! The event gave them an opportunity to strengthen many assets. The effort, the hard work, the comradery and the asset building made Youth Day 2015 a great success. Thank you GPA. If only the weather would have cooperated! A success despite Mother Nature - after all it was a "splash"!! Great event!  Everyone had fun! Thanksgiving Basket Drive 2015 Sterling Township and Coloma Township had the support and help of the community and once again distributed Thanksgiving Baskets to the needy families in the community.  1010 Thanksgiving Baskets were distributed.  We are grateful to the community for coming to the rescue when we were finding it so difficult to come up with the funds for baskets.  And we thank all of the volunteers for the long hours and hard work to make the drive a success.  Individuals from the community and youth from Sterling and Rock Falls Schools were a tremendous help.  We could not have done it without the Sauk Valley Food Bank, Kroger and Walmart Distribution Center.  Thank you.  Happening at Sterling Township
