After the bell in Evanston

Evanston’s after-school program is on the lookout for some snack donations to keep our young explorers energized on their learning journeys!

So, what can you do to help? It’s simple and hugely impactful! We’re calling for donations of bottled water and kid-friendly, bulk-packaged snacks. Think along the lines of cereal, chips, crackers, granola bars, and even pop tarts. Just a quick reminder: due to allergy concerns, we are unable to accept any nut products, fruits, produce, dairy products, or anything that needs refrigeration.

If you’re able to contribute, we’d be over the moon with gratitude. Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday, anytime between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Just head to the Evanston center’s main entrance off of Dewey Avenue, and you’ll be greeted with smiles and thanks! Contact JoAnn Avery at for more information
