The volunteer Operation Snowball Board of Directors is kicking off the Operation Snowball Summer of '17 fundraising campaign from July 7th - July 21st. Their goal is to raise $5000 and with your help and a generous 2:1 match from the Lillian and Larry Goodman Foundations the goal can be reached!

This past June 7th, over 90 participants representing 14 OS Chapters from around Illinois gathered in Bolingbrook IL for SnowballFEST! Presentations by M & P Presentations and Steve Mazzarella of the OS Board brought inspiration and skills. The day also featured Snowball awards and a Skype call from Darius Stonys who coordinates OS Chapters in Lithuania!
