Vikings for Our Community
Caring for Our Community
On behalf of The Geneva Community Chest and Vikings for Our Community, we thank everyone for their support for the 2017 Spring Swing. Together we were able to raise substantial funds for Literacy Volunteers of Fox Valley. Thank you to our many sponsors and those who donated to this amazing cause. We hope to see you on April 14, 2018 for the Spring Swing, a country and western themed event.

Vikings for Our Community, affiliated with the Geneva Community Chest, is in its second year and has already gotten down to business. These Geneva High School students have shown a great deal of interest in serving their community, and the GCC is lucky to have them on board.
This club was formed at Geneva High School in October 2016 four GCC directors meet with the high school students and help guide them through their projects and events and help them learn how a charity operates. In the very short time this club has been up and running, these students have put up Christmas lights for a fellow Geneva High School graduate and her family who have had some medical challenges, volunteered at Hesed House and Joshua Tree Community.
The Vikings group is planning a fundraising event for April 14, 2018. This fundraiser will include country and western music and food will also be provided. More details to come.
The Geneva Community Chest is incredibly blessed to have these students involved in the community. The future is bright!
