Event description

Description

As part of our Little Lake County Gives Back program we have partnered with Great Lakes Credit Union to give families an opportunity to spread kindness through hands on parent/child volunteer events. These events will allow parents and children to give back to their community by working side by side to help a charity.

Our next event will be on September 6, 2017 and we will be volunteering with the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Every Parent/Child pair that registers on or before August 11 will receive a t-shirt with our Kindness Begins with Me image (above). They will also get to meet Kirby the Kangaroo from GLCU. This event is best for elementary school children who can follow direction and control their behavior. Every parent in attendance will need a child and every child will need a parent. The Food Bank requires a 1 to 4 ratio of adults to children so we are asking parents to bring no more than 2 children each.

This event is extremely limited so you need to register each parent and child to reserve your spot. To make an even larger impact and to help ensure that people who save spots will attend we are collecting a $10 donation for the Food Bank per family. For every $1 that the we raise the food bank is able to provide $8 worth of nutritious groceries meaning your donation is $80 worth of groceries for a family in need!

(Please see rules below.)

Kindness begins with us, we hope you will join us!
