RFCC Spring 2019 Scheduled & Volunteer Recruitment Push


Greetings! We here at the River Forest Citizen Corps hope that everyone had a wonderful winter and holiday season. With spring upon us, we’re getting ready for another year of community engagement and support.

Last year, the RFCC took part in over a dozen community events and exercises. Our hard work and expertise ensured the safety of hundreds of community members and saved our collective governments thousands of taxpayer dollars. We also provided first aid services to dozens of people and helped dispose of nearly 30 pounds of expired prescriptions drugs. It was a great year!

Looking forward to this season, the RFCC is already scheduled to support six community events, with a few more in the works. Volunteers are needed for all of them! Unfortunately, a few key members have left the area over the past year, so we’ll be counting on everyone still with us to carry us through the 2019 season. We’re also planning a recruitment push this spring, so if you know of anyone who is looking for ways to contribute toward their community, please tell them to visit www.rfcitizencorps.org for more information or reach out to us at rfcitizencorps@gmail.com.

Please see our list of scheduled events below and let us know which ones you’d like to volunteer for. Thank you for everything!
