On Thursday, October 4, 2018, A&A Paving wholeheartedly supported the 2nd Annual “For the 10” Golf Outing, held at Itasca Country Club. This annual event is one of several initiatives sponsored by Mission Church’s “For the 10” – including The Global Leadership Summit, Project Just Start, the Holiday Gift Mark, DuPage PADS and the Extra Mile Award.
“For the 10” is an organization which exists to serve people by identifying and supporting needs within 10 nearby communities – often in unprecedented ways.
Without strings attached, Mission Church achieves this vision by funding and organizing exceptional initiatives that meet tangible needs not already met by others. These 10 towns include: Addison, Wood Dale, Itasca, Medinah, Bloomingdale, Roselle, Glendale Heights, Carol Stream, Bartlett and Hanover Park.
This year’s golf outing raised $90,000! As a result, “For the 10” has been able to eradicate the issue of any child beginning the school year without school supplies – here are the backpacks provided for every child in need within the “For the 10” communities.
Since Mission Church’s inception in October of 2011, it has strived not to be a church in the neighborhood, but for the neighborhood. As such, “For the 10” was formed as an expression of this commitment to the church’s ten surrounding towns.
There are approximately 262,000 people that live within the township boundaries of “For the 10.” Hidden among that population in suburban Chicago are more than 23,000 people living below the poverty level. “For the 10” believes that there are many ways to serve those who are living in one of these ten towns, who have needs that are currently not being met. Ultimately, “For the 10” hopes to transform the ten towns into a destination to live and a place that residents are increasingly proud to call home.
