About Us


Positive Impact Fox Valley is a group of volunteers who initally came together as friends socially and wanted to make a meaning difference in our community. As a 501c3 non-profit organization we are here to help serve and create a positive impact on Elgin and the surrounding Fox Valley area.


The mission of Positive Impact Fox Valley is to strengthen the Fox Valley area community in a positive and social environment by helping those less fortunate through volunteerism, service projects and fundraising for local non-profit organizations and people in need.

On Going Projects

For the past year and a half we’ve been collecting positive thoughts from the local community and communities out of state on pre-cut paper strips. A few members took the paper strips and created chain links out of them!

Our original plan was to display everyone’s positive thought at Elgin’s Citywide Block Party, National Night Out 2018 – Unfortunately, due to weather the event was cancelled. But this just means we have additional time to keep gathering positive thoughts for our chain and make it even longer!

Come out to one of our event to fill out your own chain link positive thought, or contact us to find out how you and your group can get involved!

Anderson Animal Shelter is in need of newspapers and old towels. We will be collecting newspapers and old towels on an on-going basis. If you subscribe to the newspaper, please save it for us! We would be happy to pick up any newspapers or old towels you would like to donate. Please contact us!

Toiletries for Community Crisis Center. Do you or someone you know travel and don’t use the hotel toiletries? Do you leave them behind? Why not donate them! Grab them and toss them into your suitcase. You can drop them off to a PIFV member or a member would be happy to pick them up from you! Please contact us!
