On Friday, May 3rd, 2013 People’s Resource Center (PRC) honored DuPage Medical Group by presenting the 2013 Beloved Community Award to Dr. Paul Merrick at the Many Hands, One Heart Gala.

The People’s Resource Center honors a group or organization who embraces the PRC’s vision of replacing hunger, racism, and poverty with a real spirit of love and compassion for the community through the Beloved Community Award.

As part of the award presentation Kim Perez, Executive Director of the PRC stated, “We could not be more grateful for the depth of partnership with DuPage Medical Group, and their dedicated investments of financial support, volunteer time and goods.  Their work with People’s Resource Center has made a dramatic impact on the DuPage County community.”

In the spirit of continuing to support the PRC, the DMG Charitable Fund matched the Many Hands, One Heart Gala’s Fund a Need with a grant for $21,850 that evening and also just completed a book drive which collected about 2500 new and used books to support their library and literacy program.
