SOUTH BELOIT — Want to reward some special people but you don’t have enough dough?

Walnut Creek Awards & Promotions, 851 Doner Drive, has a plethora of free used trophies. President Nikkie Chadwick said the business is offering the trophies to any youth or special needs group that wants them.

Any trophies with names still etched on them will be have their plates removed so people can have a fresh trophy. A decent sized new trophy can cost $30 to $40 making the free trophies a good deal. Chadwick said the top pieces may also be swapped out to represent different sports or activities.

“I know some groups don't get trophies because of the cost, but if they knew they could get them for free, my hope is they will stop in and see us,” Chadwick said.

Chadwick said several people didn’t know what to do with their old trophies and they asked if they could drop them off for the business to use.

“I decided that giving them out to kids or special needs groups would be the best idea for them,” Chadwick said.

Chadwick said the business also will accept used trophies from those seeking to unload them.

Walnut Creek Awards & Promotions offers plaques, trophies, engraving services, metals and apparel. It celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2015. Dec. 30 marked the one-year anniversary when Nikkie and her brother, Josh Long, purchased the business from their father Frank Long.
