Rotary Club Chicago NW would would like to support this program by funding the daily, nutritious meals provided each day for families enrolled in the program, as well as for the healthy snacks provided in the after-school programs.

Our club is building relationship with the Oakbrook Salvation Army. We volunteered at their Christmas toy drive and are volunteering on June 4th for their Donut Day. We would like to foster this relationship this year and in the coming years and increase our impact with this organization and the community they serve.
