IN THE NEWS
The O'Fallon-Shiloh Chamber of Commerce recognized Hospice of Southern Illinois for the Spirit of the Chamber Award. This award is usually given to businesses with a storefront in O'Fallon or Shiloh, but they made an exception for everything we do for the community. Thank you everyone who has contributed to our success in the O'Fallon-Shiloh community from volunteering, community events, patient care, and beyond! Here is a video the chamber put together for the winners of all different awards.
