Hinsdale Fire Department to present check to the Wellness House

HINSDALE – The Hinsdale Fire Department will present a $5,000 check to the children of the Hinsdale Wellness House at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 during the annual Halloween party.

The Wellness House is located at 131 N. County Line Road in Hinsdale. The money will go toward redesigning the children’s activity center, which is in the lower level of the Wellness House.

The money was raised during the Hinsdale Professional Firefighter’s Association’s Annual Charity Softball event in honor of Deputy Chief Mark Johnson, who lost his life in the line of duty in September 2010.

Administrators of the Wellness House, the Adventist Hinsdale Hospital as well as several children and their families will be on hand to accept the check.
