HURRICANE RELIEF FUNDRAISER AND SUPPLY DRIVE

“DuPage County – FLOODING THE CAROLINAS WITH MONEY AND SUPPLIES”

 

Downers Grove, IL, October 12, 2018 
The Downers Grove North High School I-WILL (Independent Women in Leadership) Club, in coordination with the National Honor Society, Direct Action, and the District 99 community are sponsoring a fundraiser and supply drive for the those citizens affected by hurricane Florence (Sept 2018) and hurricane Michael (Oct 2018).

Through the generous donation of Downers Grove company Romexterra Construction and its manager Alex Duta (DGN Class of 2014), we have been able to secure a 65-foot semi-truck trailer that Romexterra will pay to be driven to South Carolina on October 21, 2018 with supplies donated by our community.  This will be the third hurricane that Romexterra has provided support for those in need (Harvey-Texas 2017, Irma – Florida 2017).

Fundraising and supply donation will take place at Downers Grove North the week of October 15th according to the following schedule:
