Last year, I fundraised to support the non-profit branch of the school district where I work. This year, I wanted to find a cause to support for my fall training cycle that is in the community where I live, and I happened to run right past the SOS Children's Village in Lockport. After exploring their website, it seemed like a great fit! I hope you'll consider contributing to SOS Children's Villages!
From SOS: At SOS Children’s Villages Illinois, we are committed to providing a safe, healing place for children whose world has been shattered by abuse, neglect, or abandonment. We do this by keeping brothers and sisters together in an individual home in the care of a full-time, professional Foster Parent. In doing so, we lay the foundation for rebuilding trust, confidence, and hope for each child in our care.
