Staff from the Palatine Park District recently volunteered in tornado-stricken Washington, IL, and adopted a Washington Park District family.

A tornado ravaged the town of Washington, near Peoria, on Nov. 17. Destruction throughout the area was massive. One of the many organizations to step up to assist the community was the Illinois Association of Park Districts (IAPD), a nonprofit service, research and education organization that serves park districts, forest preserves, conservation, municipal park and recreation, and special recreation agencies. IAPD helped coordinate clean-up efforts on behalf of the Washington Park District.
