Palatine Park District’s employee-run Service Committee continues to make a difference in the Palatine community with their annual Breakfast of Champions Food Drive. While all non-perishable items are welcome, the committee selected the Breakfast of Champions theme to help focus on a healthy way to start the day.
Suggested donations include, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juice, peanut butter, strawberry jelly, pancake mix, syrup, muffin mix, baking mix, and breakfast/granola bars. Donations can be dropped off at one of four District locations beginning Tuesday, May 1 through Sunday, May 13. Drop off locations include:
- Birchwood Recreation Center, 435 W. Illinois Avenue, Palatine
- Community Center, 250 E. Wood Street, Palatine
- Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center, 150 E. Wood Street, Palatine
- Falcon Park Recreation Center, 2195 N. Hicks Road, Palatine
For individual facility hours of operation, select one of the above locations from the Facilities tab. Items collected at each facility will be donated to the Palatine Township Food Pantry.
The District’s Service Committee was formed six years ago with the mission of providing a variety of service opportunities to both staff members and the community throughout the year. A few of the committee’s projects have included assisting with environmental cleanup events, hosting drives for food, pets, Easter baskets, holiday gifts, and books, creating valentines for veterans for National Day of Service, and serving at Feed My Starving Children.
