Giving Back


Sharing the warmth for our vibrant and sustainable community -- that’s what this fun event is all about. When we share, we help more than the immediate recipient. It has a ripple effect of generosity. Your donation can have that effect, too. When we give together, we are giving collectively and that is a powerful way to Share The Warmth we have for our community.


Make your donation…and mark your calendar to join us on race day for fun festivities.


Donate here to your favorite participating organization. Share your appreciation for the work they do. The nonprofit raising the most dollars through this relay race will also earn a $500 grant form the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation.


Thank you for sharing the warmth.




Show Your Warmth


Together, we make Oak Park & River Forest an amazing and friendly place to live. With a donation of $50 and above, you will receive a warm red scarf adorned with the nonprofits that will benefit from your generosity. Display it proudly in front of your home – porch, tree, door– as a symbol of your support. Take it on a field trip around town – wrap it around people, pets, places and any thing that is a reason why you love our community. Snap photos and post them with #sharethewarmthOPRF to the “Share The Warmth” Instagram, Facebook and website. Wear it, share it, keep warm around town and be sure to wave it at the relay race.


Your spirit and participation will make Oak Park & River Forest the warmest place on March 19th. Thank you!
