As the dunes of snow grow in the Chicagoland area during the seemingly never-ending winter, Marklund couldn’t be more grateful for the generous support of the Kane County Riverboat Fund. This year’s gift from the fund allowed for the replacement of a 10-year old pick-up truck which is used as a snowplow at Marklund’s Mill Creek Campus in Geneva.
Marklund is a not-for-profit organization specializing in the care of children and adults with severe disabilities. The Kane County Riverboat Fund’s support directly affects the safety of the clients and staff. It is vital for clearing the roads on its 20-acre campus, and it could not have come at a better time as this winter has been one of the harshest. Plowing the campus is imperative to create a safe environment for transporting the clients around campus and also for the Marklund employees and visitors.
“The Kane County Riverboat Fund has provided some much-needed equipment and updates on the Marklund at Mill Creek Campus,” stated Vicki Krystof, Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Marklund. “We require the best for our clients and this Riverboat Fund truly helps to make that possible!”
