Letter: Elburn community center receives emergency grant

The Elburn and Countryside Community Center is the recipient of an emergency grant of $10,000 from the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley, located in Aurora.

The funding will be used toward the installation of a storm water drainage system for our parking lot. This winter, the Community Center experienced severe icing of the parking lot. This became a significant safety issue for the more than 48,000 individuals who use our facilities.

The installation of a storm water drainage system will help to prevent future icy conditions and will alleviate flooding during the spring and summer months. We are extremely grateful to the Community Foundation for their leadership in responding to our request in such a timely and gracious manner. Their website provides extensive information regarding the services they provide to local communities, www.communityfoundationfrv.org.
