Mark Bowden, Transportation Manager – I grew up in North Peoria but my parents and grandparents grew up on the South Side. One of my fondest memories was playing at my grandparent’s house as a kid, this is one of the reasons I wanted to work at the Mission. I’ve been transportation manager since 2004. I relish the joy I see in people’s faces whether it be in receiving or giving furniture or other gifts.



Stan Morris – I’m a lifelong Peorian, aside from a four-year stint in the Hoosier state for college. My passions are my God, my family and just about all sports. I double as a sportswriter for the Peoria Journal Star when I’m not on the truck. It is an honor and privilege to serve the Mission. I gave my heart to the Lord as a seven year old and have been a church rat all my life, serving several years in youth ministry. I am a husband to a fantastic wife (Chrissy) and father to three amazing young adults (Sarah, Emily and Daniel).


Phil Smith  –  I love working with South Side Mission as a transportation driver. My job gives me the opportunity to lift up the South Side community, where I live, in a positive way. I want to thank you for all the donation that we pick up to bless the less fortunate and your charitable hearts.
