Week of Giving - November 12-16

Channahon Park District’s Week of Giving November 12-16

All Ages Welcome
In November 2017, many members and businesses in our community volunteered their time and collected 75 blankets for the Channahon Park Districts Ronald McDonald House Blanket Drive for the families and children staying at the Oak Lawn location. Since the blanket drive was a huge success, the Channahon Park District would like to invite the members of our community to participate in our Week of Giving. We will extend a helping hand this holiday season and offer a variety of ways to give back by collecting items on certain themed days.

Location: Donation boxes will be available at Arrowhead Community Center
