This summer has been far from normal for everyone, including Titan Fuel. Titan Fuel is a food assistance program that sends food home with struggling BCSD students to help feed them over weekends and holidays. Typically we only serve the students during the school year; but given the financial stress put on many of our families due to the COVID closures, we have decided to continue our program through the summer. Titan Fuel’s one fundraising event, our Shrimp Boil & BBQ, which is held annually each June was canceled due to Illinois’ health mandates. Even so, Titan Fuel continues to thrive and come up with ways to support our students.
So, we have decided to make LEMONADE out of LEMONS we have been handed! July will be the month of lemonade stand fundraisers! We are encouraging lemonade stands to pop up all over our community. Lemonade stands can be run by organizations or individuals. Please, if you see a stand, take time to thank the organizers of the stand, and enjoy a refreshing glass of lemonade! We are hoping the organizers will notify us and we will let everyone know where they can find the stands through daily posts on our Titan Fuel Facebook page.
If you don’t have the opportunity to visit one of the lemonade stands in person, click on the "support" tab at the top of this page, or run through the Chatham INB bank to make a contribution. We appreciate all of our community support and realize we are all in this together.
Stay safe, enjoy your summer, and enjoy the LEMONADE!
