My first Christmas & I shopped the lot @ Tri-Town!!

Mission Accomplished! Our Christmas Tree Lot Is Empty!

It takes a village and then some to run a successful Christmas tree fundraiser! We are blessed with a very dedicated Board, Y friends and family and a multitude of students from Glenbard East National Honor Society, Montini Catholic High School and National University Health Sciences who did a seamless job as lot volunteers! Thank you to all involved–and thanks to the families who purchased a tree or wreath from Tri-Town! All our profits go back into our programs and help families in need!

Please Remember Tri-Town in Your End-of-Year Giving!

The year is winding down, but our needs continue! Our Y’s Kids Wish List includes a storage cabinet for North (our newest school) and funds for in-house field trips and speakers. We hope you will consider Tri-Town in your end-of-the-year gifting. A 501c3 charity, Tri-Town puts all donations to work by whittling down the Wish List for our schools and by assisting Y’s families in need, like single mom Christine and her daughter Sumaiyah.

“The scholarship I receive from Tri-Town has taken a huge weight off my shoulders and allows me to pursue my dream of becoming a naturopathic physician,” said Christine.  The full-time student and mom no longer has to use college loans to pay for child care and finds herself smiling because her  10 year old “absolutely loves” the Y’s before- and after-school programs and enjoys summer camp,

too. Mom also reports that Sumaiyah has made awesome strides with her anxiety issues and ADHD because of Tri-Town’s structured programs and loving teachers.

What’s It Like at Y’s Kids? It’s Great!

“Our experience at Y’s Kids has been wonderful! Tansy was very helpful in accommodating my daughter with special needs. Tansy, Faeda and the others have provided a sense of comfort and safety. Faeda has a wonderful disposition with Eva and the rest of the children there.

The program has been a great fit for my daughter and me. The convenience of being in the same building as the school is perfect for working parents!”

Winner, Winner! Congrats to Soleil!

Congratulations to our winning artist, Soleil! Our 2017 Ornament Contest was filled with fabulous entries, and picking a winner was a most difficult decision for our voters! And many thanks to all the Y’s Kids, whose beautiful artwork will grace the Christmas trees at Inland Bank and be sent as special inserts inside our Christmas cards! Joy all around!

Come see Soleil’s ornament–it’s been enlarged for our Christmas Tree Lot (Lombard Dairy Queen) and Inland Bank’s festivities!
