Admirals Needs Drive June 6 10am-12pm

By AHC, 05/29/20, 5:30PM CDT



Saturday, June 6th 10am-12pm

@ Center Ice of DuPage

To benefit our Admirals families in need and the Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center (GECRC)


Saturday June 6th from 10am-12pm in the Center Ice of DuPage parking lot, the Admirals will be collecting items for Admirals families in need and for the GECRC.


If you or your family may be in need of some items, please email Sam (all inquiries will be confidential) at


The GECRC mission is to help children from low-income families acquire the necessary skills in academics and social interaction to move successfully through grades K-12 and into adulthood. They do this by providing after-school and summer programs which emphasize literacy and community involvement, using the talents of teachers, volunteer tutors, GECRC Staff and a variety of local organizations.


Right now many GECRC students and their families do not have face masks to wear for protection. As the need for safe public practices continue, we are looking for ways to help families stay safe and healthy, and we invite you to contribute to our effort to collect donations of face masks and hand sanitizer for students and their families. 


We know that many community members are sewing masks to donate to organizations. If you are one of those talented and amazing people and would like to make masks for GECRC, Admirals kiddos and their parents, we would love to pass along your masks to a family in need. If you know someone who is making masks and is looking for an organization to donate to, we would be grateful for your help with coordinating those efforts to help GECRC and Admirals families as well.

  • Face masks
