Some of the most widely used FREE resources in the City of Evanston for the past year have been the Street Soccer pitches!  But as much as our community loves them, neither the City of Evanston nor District 65 can afford to buy and keep them.  These pitches have been on loan from Mettle Sports at NO cost to the city, the schools, or the park district.

Help Evanston own the Street Soccer pitch at Robert Crown Center!

Junior Volunteers Needed! – Evanston Animal Shelter

Happy Spring Junior Volunteers!

I am happy to announce the dates for this year’s Junior Volunteer Days at the Evanston Animal Shelter! This year we will be meeting at the shelter on Saturdays at 11am for 60-90 minutes. Each month we will have a special guest. Stay tuned for each month’s theme and be sure to sign up on Eventbrite so we can make sure we have enough room and supplies for everyone. Sign up information will be sent out closer to each date.

Pencil in the following Saturdays to join us at the shelter.
