ELMHURST – Amazon.com is a staple in online shopping, and chances are, you’ve purchased something from the popular site at some point. But did you know you can shop and support the People for Elmhurst Parks Foundation?
AmazonSmile is a simple way to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop. Simply visit smile.amazon.com and select the People for Elmhurst Parks Foundation, then start shopping.
When you log on and shop AmazonSmile, you’ll be contributing to PEP’s mission of providing open space, beauty, and recreational opportunities for the community. Over the years, PEP has completed a number of fundraising projects including The Playground for Everyone at Butterfield Park. The volunteer group also helps fund the Recreation Assistance Program, which provides financial assistance to disadvantaged Elmhurst families to allow them to participate in District recreational programs.
Annual golf outing
In addition to supporting PEP through AmazonSmile, you can also participate in the annual golf outing on Friday, May 19. Teams of four will enjoy nine holes of “scramble format” golf, raffle prize drawings and a buffet lunch at Sugar Creek Golf Course. Proceeds from the event benefit the Recreation Assistance Program and the Kiwanis Club of Elmhurst. The Fee is $50 per golfer. Call 630-993-8924 to reserve a spot.
