DACC receives gift

Danville Area Community College will hold a groundbreaking June 25 for a remodeling project to enhance and expand an educational facility for nursing, medical imaging and health information technology in a former U.S. Army Reserve facility at 2408 E. Main St.

The $5.7 million project is being funded with help from a new gift from the Julius W. Hegeler II Foundation.

Mr. Hegeler’s latest gift to the college was made posthumously, with the foundation’s awareness of what DACC meant to Mr. Hegeler in his lifetime.

“We saw the need DACC has to expand its health care education, and the community’s need for more people to enter into health care professions,” said board member Lois Wise.

DACC President Stephen Nacco said the hope is to be able to fund the rest of the project with state and federal support.

Open for repairs

The former Blink Mobile in Champaign is now Phone 911 at 510 N. Cunningham Ave., Suite 10, U.

The shop offers repairs to phones, tablets and laptops, prepaid wireless phone service and is an Amazon Hub location.

Manager Ben Hodson said the Phone 911 name and new shop location have been around since last year, but the shop recently opened to walk-in business.

It’s open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
