June is a great month for getting involved! School is out, warm weather is here (MORE OR LESS!) and a summer of fun continues! But the need for charitable acts doesn’t go away during vacation time, so the Foundation gave you several opportunities for service this month, and you answered!
All service projects were designed to get your kids involved too. We believe teaching kids charitable acts at a young age helps them appreciate not only the good things in their own lives, but sets them up for a lifetime of helping others----always a good thing. Read Lisa’s POST of the teachable moment she had with her sons as they helped her deliver food to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
I hope by this time you’ve taken a look at our new website. It was time to update our site and add more features to it, and I’m delighted Rob Blair and Josh Bredemeier undertook the journey with me. As we continue to grow, we want to make sure the website gives you access to information you can use. The website allows you to see what we’re doing every month; ways for you to be involved; the funds we receive and how they’re being allocated; stories from our own folks and ways they’ve others, and much more!
As we enter the summer months, I hope you and your families will enjoy all that summer brings with it. Thanks for joining the Foundation in one of our service projects. I’ll end with one of my quotes about serving:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” (Margaret Mead)
