North Grove hosts Night of Giving

North Grove School in Sycamore will hold a Night of Giving Open House from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  Tuesday. Famiies can participate in a variety of activities to support the community.

Several local celebrities will be reading aloud their favorite book in the library. Celebrities include firefighter Ian Wheeler, Sycamore School Superintendent Kathy Countryman, police officer Ryan Goodman, Sycamore High School head football coach Joe Ryan, Taxco Restaurant owner Jesus Romero and Sycamore Mayor Ken Mundy.

Collections will be taken to support local group’s causes including eyeglasses for the Lions Club, nonperishable goods for a local food pantry and items for the DeKalb County Animal Shelter. A penny drive will be held to collect as many “Honest  Abraham Lincoln” pennies as possible. The money will be donated to the local Rotary Club to support their International Water Project.

Meals on Wheels will have bags in each classroom for students to decorate. These bags will be used to deliver meals for the program.

Also, each classroom will be open so visitors can see what the students have been working on this quarter.

North Grove School is located at 850 Republic Ave.
