Our Success Stories...
Toys for Tots: The 2020 U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign was a huge success thanks to the many generous people who donated. On Friday, December 11th, Police Department personnel loaded up the department “sleigh” and dropped off the toys at the designated DuPage County Marine Corps distribution site. There were so many toys that our drop-off caused a 15-20 car backup! The Police Department would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all of those who helped give area kids in need a wonderful Christmas to remember!
Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois: February 29, 2020, at Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club. Team Warrenville’s goal was to raise $1,000 and with the help of many generous donations, $1,498 was raised! Thanks to all. Watch them take the plunge at this City of Warrenville Facebook video link.
