Giving Tree Program


Major Contributor

Rita Schofield (1924-2005) was a long-time resident of Arlington Heights who could be found every morning regardless of rain, snow, heat or cold, walking the path surrounding Pioneer Park. She volunteered much of her time within the Arlington Heights community, serving as an election judge, volunteering at Northwest Community Hospital and supporting other causes she held dear. Rita was a true pioneer with her "people first" attitude and was always ready to offer a helping hand to family, friends and strangers alike.

The Giving Tree at Pioneer Community Center

Pioneer Community Center features a donor Giving Tree. Donated by a local family in honor a loved one, the Giving Tree provides an opportunity for you to make a donation in your own name, pay tribute, commemorate a special event, or memorialize someone special; a family member, friend, or a loved one. Leaves of Gold, Silver and Bronze will be part of this enduring art as a lasting tribute. Join your family, friends and neighbors by making a contribution to promote art in the park. The Giving Tree greets guests entering the Pioneer Park Community Center. 

Be a part of the parks and recreation community you love by making a donation to support the Giving Tree.
