The entire month of July 2019 was dedicated to raising money for the Help Me Play program.

Help Me Play Month of Giving is about giving every child in our community the chance to play, explore, think creatively and learn new skills. Your donation will provide financial support, so ALL youth can have the opportunity to participate in the many programs of the Rockford Park District.

The Park District is operating today under the same level of property tax revenues as 5 years ago. As the cost of doing business rises each year, providing the same level of programming for kids becomes a challenge. You can help sustain youth programming and provide opportunities for all kids to play by supporting "Help Me Play!"

The Rockford Park District plays a vital role in keeping our kids actively engaged in recreation while developing crucial life skills. Please give to Help Me Play, and help keep kids safe, healthy and active!
