The Community Heroes Appreciation group will host “Thanking Our Everyday Heroes” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Freedom Elementary School, 11600 Heritage Meadow Drive on Saturday, April 8 to honor local police and firefighters.

The free event will have more than 30 vendors, raffles, silent auctions, a 50/50 and free crafts for kids, according to organizers.

Proceeds from raffles and donations will be used to purchase a meal, a treat and gifts for Plainfield police and firefighters.

“(With the) remaining money, Community Heroes will put together care packages for the homeless and bags for officers to give to kids when they go to a domestic call,” according to the Facebook event page.
