Free icee event celebrates back-to-school
Area students and their families are invited to celebrate being back in school with a free icee in Oak Park Thursday.
Companions for Children, with the help of Farmers Union Insurance-Ressler, Sipma, Beuchler Agency, is sponsoring a drive-through, back-to-school icee giveaway at Shelter #9. The giveaway begins at 3:30 p.m. and runs until 5 p.m. or until supplies are gone.
The event is designed to promote community engagement and let people know about Companions for Children, said Jalisa Tinnes, the organization’s assistant director. The program’s mentors and mentees have been invited to participate as an opportunity to engage in community service, and information will be available for families regarding the opportunities for kids to be part of the program.
