Holiday Spirit needs your help

By on October 21, 2011

KANELAND—Holiday Spirit, a joint program between the Kaneland schools and Conley Outreach/West Towns, is in need of organizations, businesses, churches and other groups to adopt local families in need this holiday season.

Last year, Holiday Spirit provided assistance to 141 children in 63 families through the generous donations from this community. Unfortunately, the need will be just as great this year.

Individuals or groups interested in adopting a family can contact Nicole Pryor, social worker at Kaneland John Shields Elementary School, at (630) 466-8500, ext. 108, or nicole.pryor@kaneland.org. You may also contact Carol Alfrey (West Towns Coordinator) at (630) 365-2880 or conleyor@conley-outreach.org.

Monetary donations are also needed to purchase last-minute gifts and for gas gift cards. Checks payable to Holiday Spirit can be sent c/o Conley Outreach, P.O. Box 931, Elburn, IL 60119.
