Chinese Delegates at Metea:

Funding for Expansion:
The Alive Center in Naperville is in a final push to raise the funds to enable them to expand their space and program offerings. The teen center has the opportunity to rent out the 3,200 square foot space next door to their location on 5th Avenue, but need $100,000 to make the expansion a reality. They’re close to their goal, but need a few more donors willing to donate $5,000 to $10,000 each to make their dream happen, and allow them to expand their free STEM programming for Naperville youth.
