Food4Kids Backpack Program Feb. 21,2023
Here we are again packing food for our favorite program. We had the Early Act Kids and the employees of Thornton Powell Insurance helping to pack all the snacks for those that will receive them each Friday to take home. Special thanks to Bill Zerinskas and Mike Donahue (owners of Thornton Powell Insurance) for a really nice donation that will help fund this program.
Yesterday the Oak Forest Rotary Club had the pleasure of delivering new headphones to the kids of Mrs. Sandi Cophers' class at Jefferson grade school in Chicago Heights. What a great group of kids.
