Teen Parent Connection (TPC) is a nonprofit organization in DuPage County which provides comprehensive programs and services related to teenage pregnancy and parenting. For over 20 years, Knox has assumed the responsibility for providing the facility, childcare and family style meals as one of our vital mission and outreach programs.
Looking for an opportunity to help out teenage moms (and dads) and their little ones this new year? Why not sign up to provide and serve a pre-planned meal to TPC young parents and their infants and toddlers on Tuesday evenings? Meals need not be home cooked or complicated. Instructions, reimbursement and personal support are available. Dinner is served during the school year from September through May at 6:00 p.m., allowing you to finish before 7:30 p.m.!!
Questions? Please email Bonnie Olson or call Bonnie at 630-355-4417 or email Anne Kingsbury – or call 630/369-9680. Please consider choosing a date for you or your organization to help. TPC participants continually express their gratitude for the wonderful meals, hospitality and love they receive from Knox. We sincerely thank you for your past and continued support!
