This July, the South Barrington campus will be challenging every household to donate one backpack, with the goal of collecting 2,022 backpacks for the 2022 school year. In addition, we’re asking families with kids to donate one pair of new gym shoes. At the end of July, the Care Center will be transformed into a back-to-school event where we’ll welcome thousands of students through our doors to receive a new backpack, fill it with supplies, and choose a new pair of gym shoes. In addition, we’ll be providing free back-to-school haircuts, bouncy houses, food, activities, and fun.
