RNS Community Service – Ravinia Gives Back!

Ravinia Nursery School continues its long-standing tradition of giving back to our community.  RNS will again partner with a local family focus center “Right from the Start” for our annual Holiday Toy Drive.  They provide education and family support services to at-risk Spanish speaking families who are expecting a baby or who have children and live primarily in Highland Park, Highwood and nearby communities.  The program aims to promote healthy family functioning, healthy prenatal outcomes for pregnant women, and enhance the development of children.

One way you can start getting involved right away is our ongoing Diaper Drive.  Two local charities that we work with locally (Neighbor to Neighbor and Right from the Start) have teamed up to create a “diaper pantry.”  There will be a plastic bin labeled “DIAPER DROP OFF” across from Kathy’s office.  If you are interested in donating please do!  Any type will be accepted.

We will also be teaming up with local Moraine County Food Pantry which services residents of all ages, from children to seniors, in our community, providing them with food and non-food items.  We will be running theme-based Food Drives to benefit the Food Pantry.

There are so many opportunities this year for us to reach out in our neighborhood, and give a little back to the community that has brought all our wonderful RNS families together!
