Opportunity #4: Back-to-School Uniform Drive on August 10 

A back-to-school uniform drive is being held in conjunction with Washington Park Community Center through the Rockford Park District. The event is scheduled for August 10, 2019 from 12:00pm – 3:00pm at Washington Park. The main objective is to not just give out uniforms to the children in the city of Rockford, but to also provide the community with a helping hand and reassurance that we care about the kids in our community and more importantly, about their education. 

The donations can consist of monetary funds or volunteering time and services. If you are interested, please contact Daebreon Leach at [email protected]
