Woodridge Rotary supports youth and families in community

 

Woodridge Rotary is proudly completing its 27th year of providing financial support for youth and families to enroll in recreation programs and fulfill their dreams. Over 60 youth and their families have been supported since July 1, 2016.

Since 1990, the Woodridge Rotary Club and the Woodridge Park District have partnered to provide families with economic hardship the financial assistance to participate in recreation programs.

“Our goal is to make sure that every young person has the opportunity to participate in recreation programs that fulfill their lives,” commented Bob Mocek, Rotary Club President. “It is a tribute to our members and the Woodridge Park District that we have been able to sustain this effort for so long; and we have every intention to continue this program for many years to come,” he added.

“Our partnership with the Rotary Club has been very effective over these years. Hundreds of Woodridge families have benefitted from this program,” commented Mike Adams, Park District Executive Director.

Woodridge residents who need assistance to participate in Park District programs should contact the Park District at 630-353-3300 or visit www.woodridgeparks.org/ for more information.

The Rotary Club partners with many community organizations to further its goals. Funds are raised primarily through the Club’s annual Mini Triathlon which is slated for August 13. More information can be found at the Club website at www.woodridgerotary.org.
