Keep We’re Meeting a Need in our community through “Your Investment creates positive change” 

We made a difference in 2016.  

  • Over 9,000 individuals visited the Fred Hampton Aquatic Center - a 125% increase over 2015.
  • Everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer due to the fact that there were zero aquatics incidents
  • 100% of the 286 children and adults who received complimentary swim lessons reduced their risk of drowning by learning safety in and around water..
  • The philanthropic community contributed $3,700 to the success of the pool, including:
    • Rotary Club of Maywood • AA Rental Center • Delta Sigma Theta Sorority - Glen Ellyn Alumnae • Stacy Saunders & Joe Mitzenmacher • Village of Maywood • Gary Woll • Neighborhood United
      Methodist Church • Donna La Sage • A5Group Inc. • Forest Park National Bank • Schulz-Brundage, Inc. • Forest Agency Insurance • Klein, Thorpe, And Jenkins, LTD. • Bradley Wooten

We have a big dream for 2017. 

  • Our goal this summer is 10,000 guest visits.
  • We want to provide at least 300 children with swim lessons.
  • Statistics show that minority children have a high rate of drowning. We want to lower that rate by teaching children proper water safety skills.
  • Studies have shown that physical activity leads to higher achievement in the classroom. We want to support the youth of Maywood and help them reach their full academic potential.
  • Among children between ages 6 to 11, Latino (26.1 percent) and Black (23.8 percent) obesity rates are higher than the White (13.1 percent) rate. These same increased rates are seen among Latino and non-Latino black teenagers ages 12 to 19 (CDC)
  • Studies have also shown that children who spend more time outdoors are less likely to be obese. We want to support a healthier community by giving children the opportunity to spend summer outdoors! Your investment creates positive change.
  • Contribute as a Monetary Sponsor and directly offset operational costs.
  • Contribute as a Scholarship Provider and not only will you directly offset operational costs, but you’ll also receive Scholarship Annual Passes to give to youth or families who cannot afford passes.
