Community members who are able to help are asked to drop off items at My Special Toy Store, located at 5137 Main Street in Downers Grove or with Rotary President Jonathan Twitty, State Farm, 414 75th Street in Downers Grove. If you would like items picked up with no contact, please call Lisa at 630-479-1392 or Ann at 630-956-1000. Donations will be collected through September 29, 2020.


“As Rotarians, we’re always looking for ways to help others, and there is no shortage of ways for everyone to help out during this crisis,” said Jonathan Twitty, president of the Rotary Club of Downers Grove. 


The Rotary Club of Downers Grove has been active in the community for over 60 years, and members meet weekly. The club raises money and donates funds to over 25 organizations in and around the community, as well as projects through Rotary International. Due to the pandemic this year, the Club had to cancel its signature event, Rotary GroveFest. 


The Rotary Club of Downers Grove is the local chapter of Rotary International, which has over 1.2 million members worldwide. Rotary is one of the largest service clubs in the world. “Service Above Self” is the Rotary’s motto.
