The Dependent Clauses are Sandburg eight graders who raised $1800 by doing yard work and selling cider and baked goods at local events.  This year their fundraising helped a single mom with two young children move to transitional housing by 

purchasing clothing and other family necessities.

County Board members Paul Fichtner and Pete DiCianni present a proclamation of commendation to the Dependent Clauses, a group of students from Sandburg Middle School in Elmhurst raising money to help families at Christmas. The group started in 2013 and has raised $5,500 to help 21 children, buying toys, clothes, coats, gloves and more. The group is currently working to become a nonprofit organization. They have been twice honored by the Elmhurst Commission on Youth as Exemplary Youth Service Award winners.
