Wish List

The number of children we serve continues to rise and because of that we are expanding to add more classrooms and recreational space. But we need help in order to make the space usable, comfortable and safe for our kids and volunteers.

If you are able to help with any of these items, please contact our office at 815-962-5067. Thank you!

URGENT NEED!
A.E.D.s (Automated Electronic Defibrillators) – Because of the number of kids and adults spending time in our building, having these medical devices available is crucial. We need two units for our large building, as well as staff training, as soon as possible. Approximate cost: $3,000.

Electrical – Before we can move into the new section of our building, the electrical service needs to be expanded and brought up to code for a computer lab and other equipment.

Plumbing - The new section will need working bathrooms and a water heater installed.

Carpentry – When our new floor plan is finalized, we will need handy carpenters to help us make our plans a reality. Walls, ceilings, flooring, trim – we’ll need it all!

Painting – There are many areas throughout our building requiring fresh paint. If you are able to offer your painting skills, or even donate paint, let us know!

Decorative Painting – We love to make our large walls more interesting for the kids. If you have an artistic hand we need someone to add some decorative painting and/or inspirational words to our classroom walls.
