Donate to Support Families in Need

District 204 currently has 18 percent of its students qualifying for free or reduced lunch. This translates to more than 5,000 students. Purchasing school supplies so children are prepared for the school year can be challenging for low-income families. To address this problem, the Indian Prairie Parents' Council (IPPC) is hosting a drive to support families who may need assistance when their children return to school in August. If you would like to help make a difference for our families, you can make a donation in any amount by visiting http://ipsd.us/8TZJK.

If you would prefer to write a check, please make it payable to Indian Prairie Parents' Council. Checks can be mailed to Community Relations Coordinator, Crouse Education Center, 780 Shoreline Drive, Aurora, IL 60504.

IPPC will use 100 percent of funds collected to purchase Meijer, Walmart and Target gift cards for distribution through the schools to families in need. Donations can be made through May 18.
