"As it is that we at T-Squared Building Solutions, Inc. select a local charity each year to bolster in support of a wonderful cause, we are extremely happy and proud to have selected the Barrington Junior Women’s Club and their amazing efforts with “Spashpad”! This incredible endeavor with which they have engaged will provide a “water park” like experience for those children with both mental and physical challenges. When I first read about “Splashpad” in the Quintessential Barrington magazine, I was touched beyond words, and much ado to the fact that I, myself, have a mentally challenged adult sister with whom is the angel of our family. I vividly remember the struggle my own parents had when we were children as they were always searching for places and environments that would allow my beloved sister to enjoy the same interaction and wonderment as normal children. This amazing idea originated, developed and advanced by Erin Shechtman, President of the BJWC, is being carefully crafted into a blessed reality for these children, and with the full support of the community. We are fully committed to helping her and the BJWC do all that they can as they continue their pursuit of charitable donations so at to see this effort through to fruition. To that end, and because of my position on the board of directors for the Chicago Chapter of the NFL Players Association, not only has our company fully backed this initiative, but the players association is also now deeply involved in support of “Splashpad” to further all efforts towards raising the necessary funds to see this through!

We deeply thank you for all that you may do!"

Simply fill out the donation form (Click Here) and submit with your payment either through the mail (checks made payable to Countryside PTO) or by using our no fee pay portal below.

We need to complete our fundraising in 2015 in order to access the best available bid pricing on this project. Our deadline on the brick order will be in early 2016, so you’ll have time to consider what icons or what verbiage you’d like to see on your brick….but please don’t delay!To view the available “Buy a Brick” icons, click HERE. Please contact Megan at meganelwell@ymail.com or Anne at anne@strategyskills.com with any questions. Each donation brings us one step closer to turning our Hoop Dreams into a reality.
