Celebrate Clearbrook's 25th year of "tagging" by donning a vest, grabbing a can, and doling out fistfuls of Jelly Belly beans while collecting money at storefronts and intersections during a two-hour shift Friday, May 16, or Saturday, May 17. All proceeds benefit more than 6,000 children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities served by Clearbrook.

Tag Days name was changed to Clearbrook Jelly Belly Days in honor and appreciation of the Jelly Belly Company, who generously donates more than 100,000 packets of their signature candy annually. This event is a fun way to show your support for a great cause, teach your children the meaning of "giving back," and demonstrate your company's involvement in the community.

"Thanks to nearly 25 years of community support from individuals, businesses and corporations, Clearbrook Jelly Belly Days has evolved into our second largest fundraiser, generating nearly $100,000," said Carl M. La Mell, Clearbrook president.

"The money we raise is directly proportional to the number of volunteers, and our goal this year is 1,000 volunteers to raise over $100,000."

Volunteers are encouraged to sign up with family, friends, and co-workers to staff their own corner or intersection. Other ways to help include: posting the volunteer opportunity at work or church, making a donation, and checking to see if your company has a corporate matching program.

To participate, contact Janis Edelheit at (847) 385-5008 or jedelheit@clearbrook.org, or register at www.clearbrook.org/jellybellydays.
