Our mission at Once Upon A Child Oak Brook is to help local families and our environment.

Once Upon A Child in Oak Brook, IL is inviting kids and local area families to donate their gently used backpacks between July 11 - July 28, 2015, at their store located at The Oaks, 1600 W. 16th Street, Oakbrook, IL 60523. The first 200 kids who donate a new or gently used backpack will receive a free book offer from Once Upon A Child, as well as offers from local businesses including JumpZone, Chic-Fil-A, Huntington and other supporters. All those that donate can enter into a drawing to win a $50 Get-Set-For-School gift card from Oakbrook Once Upon A Child.

This year, Once Upon A Child-Oak Brook is working with customers and the community to collect gently used backpacks to support local area children from low-income families to also get ready for back-to-school. Once Upon A Child Oak Brook will hold the backpack drive at its location and deliver the donated items to Catholic Charities in time for their annual Back-To-School Fair

"We are so excited to be working with the community by helping to collect backpacks that kids and families no longer use and that they can still be recycled and benefit someone else," said Rachel Gutierrez, owner of Once Upon a Child Oak Brook. "We even received support from local businesses that are giving coupons and offers to those who are giving back as our way of thanking them for their giving spirit."
