LGCS Barn and Playground Fundraiser
Organized by: Long grove country school School
Long Grove Country School is a private preschool-kindergarten located in Long Grove. It's run by two women who have dedicated their lives to others. They are both mothers, teachers, coaches, animal rescuers and one even runs a nanny placement business in her 'free' time. Both always put others before themselves. The school is small and amazing. It's home to a cow, two pigs, an alpaca, chickens, birds, a snake, a hedgehog just to name a few. You see, one of the owners also rescues unique animals and used to care for them at her home! They have a barn at the school that unfortunately is very run down. It literally has holes in the roof and on the walls. This barn is home to most of the animals. They have never raised tuition to cover its costs. It's been a burden on them and now I'm hoping some of you may help. I realize this day and age where gofundme programs are being thrown at you for all sorts of financial assistant requests it hard to find a comfortable place to donate; however, I'm hoping you might choose to donate a few dollars to this one too. Not only will it help the animals that will be directly effected, it will also enrich the students who attend this school. Their teaching program and philosophy that integrates children and nature is one you don't find often. It's the only one I found when researching preschools for my children. Please help raise money for barn repairs. They will be holding a fundraising 'carnival' in May (which they usually only break even after since they offer so many activities and food out of their own pockets) that you are also welcome to attend which is where they will be presented the gofundme donations. If you love animals or if you love children or if you love both, then this is a great place to throw a few bucks!!! Thank you!!
