Big Hearts Throughout the Year


Big Hearts of Fox Valley offers a way to help families who may be experiencing a financial hardship and are having trouble providing basic items to their children who attend a D303 school, not just at Christmas time, but throughout the school year as well! This program is intended to help children in need in our early childhood center through 12th grade during the school year.

D303 staff and other local agencies help us to identify families who may be experiencing any of the following factors that impact the parents’ ability to provide much needed items for their children.


  • Single parent
  • Illness or death in the immediate family
  • Loss of income or low-income
  • Homelessness
  • Home destroyed by fire
  • Other circumstances that may impact a family’s ability to provide needed items for their children, determined at the discretion of the social worker/agent



If you have a child enrolled in D303 and are experiencing financial hardship, please reach out to your school social worker. They will determine if you qualify and reach out to us.

If you live within the boundaries of D303 and don’t have any children enrolled in D303 school system, please fill out this form for assistance. Big Hearts Assistance Application .
