You Can Make a Difference
The fund began in response to the increasing number of Greendale children and families living in tough circumstances. It is also their vision that it will be a means to advocate on behalf of children and young people who need a boost. Up to 30% of Greendale children now live in poverty. This means that an increasing number of families in our village have less than adequate access to simple but critical things like reading books at home, healthy foods, a place to play and exercise, being able to go on a field trip, attending a park and recreation program or camp, or having a new coat or shoes.

Kid Boosters in the News...
"When I grew up, if I needed $10 for a field trip and my mom didn't have it, I didn't go," Foundation president Grant Johnson told GreendaleNow, describing the sort of situation the program, known as KidBoosters, might deal with. "It's a completely anonymous process. A teacher will inform the administration that there's a need, for example a kid who can't afford $20 for a field trip."
The program is the brainchild of former school superintendent William Hughes and former School Board member Judy Fons. Learn more at GreendaleNow...
