The nonprofit organization Let It Be Us has postponed a foster care and adoption recruitment event because of a forecasted winter storm.

The event was planned for Saturday but has been rescheduled to 10 a.m. to noon Feb. 17 at the Church of Holy Apostles, 5211 Bull Valley Road, McHenry.

The event will feature two local foster parents – Woodstock mother Jennifer Marsh and Michelle Prickett – who will speak about their experiences.

Social service agencies Camelot Care Centers, Lutheran Child and Family Services and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services will be on-site during the event.
