We are switching gears for this year’s Annual Picnic. We will be meeting in Lake Bluff, IL on August 18th to volunteer at a wonderful organization, Bernie’s Book Bank! Bernie’s is one of Chicago’s largest literacy programs initiatives. The non-profit organization distributes new and used children’s books directly to at-risk children throughout Chicagoland and volunteers of all ages can donate their time to Bernie’s.
Don’t worry, the gourmet box lunch isn’t going anywhere. We will meet at Bernie’s at 11am to eat and then volunteer for approximately 90 minutes starting at 12:30 PM.
Please consider donating new and/or gently used children’s books or a monetary contribution – even if you are unable to attend.
