SOS Illinois is blessed with many wonderful donors and corporate partners. One of these incredible partners for which we are beyond grateful to have support our Villages and children in foster care in so many ways, is BorgWarner. In February, the BorgWarner Cares team created an amazing Black History Month event for the children at our Roosevelt Square Village. Held at our Roosevelt Square Community Center, the celebration was a full day of educational opportunities, hands-on learning projects, engaging crafts, fantastic food, and of course so much fun!
Children at SOS Illinois participated in activities that focused on famous black people, who were major contributors to inventions and historical events. The event allowed the children to learn the role these amazing inventors and entrepreneurs, Like George Washington Carver and more, played in history. Then, they had the chance to build replicas of the equipment that was invented.
Watch a complete recap of the event here.
