Willow Tree Missions Celebrating Opening of Downtown Monticello Location

A Piatt County non-profit is celebrating the successful first step of a big vision in Monticello's downtown.


Jill Maxey is the Executive Director of Willow Tree Missions in Piatt County and indicates the downtown location has been in the works since around 2020 and they finally opened it earlier this fall. She points out they do not take donations at the downtown Monticello location, so take those to the mission's original space in Monticello. 



Maxey calls the completion of the thrift store a huge domino to fall and looks forward to focusing next phase of the building renovation, which will be the other parts of the lower level.



The capital campaign for Willow Tree Missions continues and Maxey feels it has been wildly successful. She thanks all the donors for their financial contributions as well as material donations.



Over 180 volunteers have made meaningful contributions to the downtown location. Maxey says groups across the community are coming out in support of their mission.



Maxey indicates while they continue to focus on the development of the downtown location, they continue to serve individuals and families impacted by domestic violence and that has totaled over 60 families and their children.
