Please do your early December Whole Foods Day shopping on Wednesday, December 5 –anytime during regular store hours- and 5% of your purchases will go to support our Deerfield Park Foundation. Proceeds will benefit our 2013 Linda Gryziecki (College / Post-Secondary Institution) Scholarships. This year, the Foundation hopes to raise enough funds to offer two (2), $1,000 scholarships to the most qualified candidates (one who is a 2013 high school graduate and one who is a college-age student who will be in their 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year during the fall of 2013). Candidates may be current/recent Deerfield Park District employees or volunteers who have worked at least 25 hours in the past year and/or a Deerfield Park District resident. Last year, one $1,000 Scholarship was awarded in May. The Foundation’s committee will meet early in 2013 to prepare the announcements and applications which should be ready for distribution by or before early March. For more information call Foundation Manager Darla Kuhs at 847-572-2611 or email Darla@dfpd.org. The Foundation’s website is www.deerfieldparkfoundation.org.
