Peru’s history became a story of two levels: Water Street (the bottoms) and the town growing above the bluff. It worked hard to link the two. Peru has a twin city – LaSalle – on its eastern edge.


Peru plant employees support numerous charities and charitable activities, including building Habitat for Humanity homes; donating funds to two local pantries; providing school supplies to underprivileged students; supporting the local March of Dimes chapter; donating funds to a youth service bureau; and raising funds for the local Junior Achievement chapter, which provides additional educational opportunities for students.
