Our 2018 Back-to-School Fair Was a Great Success!

First Christian Church of Downers Grove

Our heartfelt thanks to all the companies providing our door prizes and a special thank you to the following 2017 Back to School Fair partners and major contributors:


(Disciples of Christ)

Our 2018 took place on August 11th from noon - 3:00 pm.  We were again blessed with a beautiful rainless day - Answered Prayers!    We hosted over 550 people to a day of fun, food, school supplies and more!    Our outreach included representation across the Chicagoland area from Chicago to Romeoville and Willowbrook to Joliet.  We gave away almost 50 preschool bags, over 300 elementary backpacks and 150 middle/high school backpacks.  We provided over 40 free haircuts and everyone enjoyed games, a raffle and food!  A big thank you to over  100 volunteers who helped make the fair a great success!

Our 2019 Back-to-School Fair will be our 10th!  It is scheduled for Saturday, August 10, 2019.  Call us if you can help!  Food and middle/high school supplies are our biggest need, but any help is much appreciated!
