Social Service projects throughout the year allow our participants to be fully involved citizens of their community as they contribute time and energy to help others.
At the beginning of the summer, our participants had the opportunity to help plant an Our Place area at Ravinia. With special Ravinia gardening gloves and spears, participants got right into the action and, together with a few Ravinia gardeners and other employees, planted dozens of beautiful flowers and plants.
As a special thank you for the participants’ hard work, Ravinia invited Our Place participants and their families to a concert later in the summer. We were invited to sit on the lawn at the American Idol concert last month. Dozens of participants and their families gathered for a night of nice music, beautiful weather, and great friends.
If you happen to be at Ravinia this summer with your participant, be sure to check out the Our Place garden.
