Monday through Friday, 9:00am until 3:00pm. This FUNDrive through Savers will continue the entire month of January. Help keep usable items out of the landfill while, at the same time, helping de-clutter your closets, basements, homes, etc. Our goal is 800 bags of clothing which will allow us to offer two $1,000 college scholarships for our local students. Questions? Call the chamber office at 630.665.3325. We also thank our friends at Savers! Here are links to a graphic as well as a poster for you to print and post in your facility (please and thank you!)
