Membership in the New Lenox Friends of the Parks provides a unique opportunity to ensure that our kids and our community can enjoy the many benefits that both parks and recreational programs provide. For more information go to our website https://nlfop.square.site/.
The mission statement of the Friends of the Parks is:
“A non-for-profit foundation organized to foster, encourage, and promote the mission statement of the New Lenox Community Park District by providing financial contribution assistance and/or a volunteer community base of individuals for the support of its functions and programs, and dedication to the overall well being to the residents they serve.”
Periodic fundraisers and participation in events is the driving force used to successfully promote the mission and donations we provide to the New Lenox Community Park District.
Fundraising efforts result in an agreed upon percentage of funds that are remitted to the New Lenox Community Park District as well as the New Lenox Friends of the Parks. Since our inception, the New Lenox Friends of the Parks has donated over $20,000 worth of donations to further the work of the New Lenox Community Park District.
The group only meets once a quarter, but the important work we do create a lifetime of memories for a child. Our membership is committed to assisting the New Lenox Community Park District to ensure that together we can improve the quality of life in our community.
