April 2019: DuPage Human Race
The Helen Plum Library Foundation participated in its first DuPage Human Race for Charity on April 27, 2019. We had eleven board members, library staff, and patrons participate. Although the weather wasn’t the best (we beat the snow storm by a few hours), we enjoyed ourselves and raised money for the foundation.
November & December 2018: Christmas Mart & Jingle Bell Jubiliee
As one of our first fundraisers, the Library Foundation participated in the Lombard Christmas Mart and the Jingle Bell Jubilee. We sold book themed baskets created with donated books, small items, and gift certificates. We were very pleased with the opportunity to promote and raise funds for the Library Foundation.
