To celebrate its 20th Anniversary, the Junior League of Kane & DuPage Counties led a 20,000 Book Drive in our communities.  By the end of JLKD’s 20th League Year, we had exceeded our goal and collected 20, 158 books to donate to local at-risk children.  The collected books were then donated to organizations in the community including:

  • Pioneer Elementary School, West Chicago
  • Mutual Ground
  • Aurora Public Library
  • Aurora Public Library Bookmobile
  • Day One Network
  • Head Start
  • Big Brothers, Big Sisters of South Kane and Kendall Counties
  • The Light of the Heart

  • The Well Child Center, Elgin
  • Give Me Five, U-46 Elgin Public Schools
  • Children’s Waiting Room, Kane County Courthouse
