Sometimes, the simplest things— a package of diapers, warm winter clothing, some extra food—can make a big difference. The Marketplace at the FRC is a food pantry and community closet for our families to access resources they may need.
Open two days a week, these rooms are stocked with everything from food and clothing to school supplies, toys, and household items.
Items are generally donated by local organizations, businesses, or individual members of the community. District 63's annual We Care Campaign ensures that it was well stocked for the start of the new year. And, in November 2022, the EMSD63 Foundation was able to support the Marketplace with $1,000 grant from Panjwani Network Restaurants and the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation.
Client hours: Mondays 2-5 PM and Fridays 1-4 PM
