Chicago Blackhawks

NDN is very proud to be partners with the Chicago Blackhawks in our fight against childhood obesity. From the very beginning of NDN’s existence, the Blackhawks have been extremely supportive of our running program and community garden. For four years we have been a recipient of grants from the Chicago Blackhawks Charities. Every step of the way they have been there to help NDN help change the lives of the children on the Near West Side of Chicago.


Junior League of Chicago

Our partnership with the Junior League of Chicago started back in 2010. Former JLC member Jennifer Truong somehow found out about our small non-profit and contacted me to see if we needed any assistance. At that time we needed volunteer coaches for our running program. Jennifer got 25 women to come out and be coaches for the first summer of our running program. And since then our partnership has blossomed. The JLC women have been great volunteers for both our running program and our Literacy Program. The women are dedicated, committed and always excited to be help the kids in our program. Without their help, NDN would not be able to do what we do for the kids on the Near West Side. We look forward to continuing and growing our relationship with the JLC.
