Naper Settlement

Naper Settlement and the Savers Thrift Store in Naperville are working together to make the environment a better place.

Through Monday, April 28, you can donate your used clothing, toys, shoes and accessories, household items, bedding, linens and bath items and books to Savers at 204 S. Route 59 in Naperville and mention that the donated items are to benefit Naper Settlement.

Savers will pay Naper Settlement for each pound of items donated. Savers also will pay its local nonprofit partner, the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago.

Savers is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. For more information, contact the store at (630) 778-8967 or Naper Settlement at (630) 420-6010 or by email at

Proceeds will be used to support the Rita (Fredenhagen) and John Harvard Early Learning Playscape, a 10,000-square-foot interactive area that was developed and designed for children ages 2 to 7 and will have Naperville's only splash pad.

The playscape will be available to children with a broad spectrum of capabilities and will be accessible to children with special needs. The playscape is scheduled to open later this summer.
