December Member Meeting

In lieu of a December member meeting, Juniors gears up for our biggest service project of the year ... 'Christmas Baskets' aka our Christmas Family Adoption Program. See below for details.

Thursday, December 14th: Super Thursday/Christmas Baskets
Parkside Community Church: 764 St. Charles Rd., Glen Ellyn

Volunteers are needed to help with the myriad of details that go into making our Christmas Family Adoption "Baskets" Program successful. Volunteer slots available from 9:00 AM through 7:00 PM. Volunteer opportunities include family adoptions, toy drive, food drive, toiletry drive, wrapping gifts, and delivery of the baskets. Children, friends, and neighbors encouraged to come lend a hand.

Saturday, December 16th, Delivery Day
Parkside Community Church: 764 St. Charles Rd., Glen Ellyn

It's the big day! Come help deliver the Christmas Baskets to the recipient families. It's the most rewarding day of the year where you will meet some of the loving families who are part of our program. It's an opportunity to play "Santa" for the day and help make a family's holiday season truly merry.

Grab your husband, children, sister/brither, neighbor, community memebers or some good friends and come and help deliver the baskets. We guarantee it will be one of the most amazing service projects you will do all year.
