Downtown Comes Together for One of Its Neighbors

The Downtown Neighborhood Association of Elgin and our downtown businesses invite you to join us in raising funds for Patricia Keeney, owner of Keeney’s Sporting Goods in downtown Elgin.

Patricia is very ill and will be in the hospital for quite some time. DNA volunteers have been running her store in her absence in an effort to keep her business afloat; however additional financial help from the community is very much needed.

You can help by making a cash donation or a check made out to “Patricia Keeney Fund”. Drop off your donation or mail it to the DNA, 2 Douglas Avenue, Elgin, IL 60120. Many downtown businesses also have collection jars ready to accept your donations. You can also help by shopping at Keeney’s Sporting Goods & PK’s Antiques, Monday-Saturday, 11AM-6PM.

For additional information, please contact Tonya Hudson at the DNA at (847) 488-1456 or email
