Night OWLS (Night Out With Loving Sitters) is a non-sectarian ministry of First United Methodist Church in Arlington Heights, open to families throughout the northwest suburbs. Originally designed as a respite program for parents of special needs children, it has evolved into something more: still a delightful evening out for parents but also fun for all the children and our volunteers. There is quite a range of “disabilities,” though we are not able to accept medically fragile children.
On the third Saturday of the month (September through May, except not in December), special needs children and their siblings, ages 2-12, enjoy a pizza supper at 6:00 pm. After dinner, all children can visit different activity stations throughput the lower level of the church. Crafts, large motor equipment, movies, computer games, Lego building, board games, and more are included each evening. Each special needs child has his/her own adult “buddy” and all children are supervised by a youth or adult. Parents must pick up children by 9:00 pm.
We are not a large program, we advertise by word-of-mouth, and we try to accept all interested families each month.
Everyone needs to do a background check. The Background check is completed through Safe Gatherings. Lynn can do everyone's background check. So reach out to Lynn to get this done. It does cost $39, but the church will reimburse you for the background check.
Giving Tuesday is a worldwide movement to encourage people to give back at the start of the holiday season (very important after Black Friday and Cyber Monday!). eKiwanis participates in Giving Tuesday by running a Facebook fundraiser. Members are asked to donate (as they are able), share the fundraiser, and invite their friends and family to participate.
