May 14, 1pm-6pm: Glen Ellyn Cares Collection Drive & Selfie Station

The Glen Ellyn Cares fundraiser was started by the Chamber in order to assist struggling local restaurant owners by buying meals to be donated to staff at local hospitals. If you are able to help, any level of support makes a difference and is greatly appreciated! Cash or check donations will be accepted from 1pm to 6pm at Ackerman SFC on May 14th. After you donate, a photo backdrop is available so you can customize a thank you sign for essential workers and snap a selfie (donation not required to use the selfie station)! Please bring your own marker or pen.

May 18: Blood Drive – Be a Beacon of Hope!

Help ensure a healthy blood supply in Illinois by donating at the upcoming blood drive at Ackerman SFC, 800 St. Charles Road, on Monday, May 18. Appointments, available from 1 to 6pm, are required in order to control the number of people at the site at a given time and to ensure safe social distancing (no walk-ins). Keeping in compliance with our state’s ordinance, donors will be required to bring and wear face masks during the donation process.
