Churchville, Elmhurst, Illinois


Kids Helping Kids is the title of the display case you will see as you enter Churchville Middle School in Elmhurst, Illinois. The display case features Okello Francis, who wishes to continue his education beyond primary school. His wishes have come true! Teacher Joelle Soefker and her team of students, G.T.O. donate the profits from their after-school healthy snack bar. Profits from F.A.M. [Food, Art and Music] Night also add to Frances’ support.

Churchville Middle School students are making a difference in Okello Francis’ life. They are connecting to a young man who is their age yet living halfway around the world. As a result of this connection everyone is learning.

Thank you Churchville Middle School for three years of support!!!
