Please Remember To Give This Holiday Season

As we gather with our families to celebrate yet another holiday season, to reflect on the past year and anticipate the New Year, please remember those who are not as fortunate as you.

The Veteran’s Park District is conducting a food drive and is in need of non-perishable canned and packaged goods (no glass please). Donations can be dropped off at Grant Park, 44 Golfview Drive.

The City of Northlake is collecting non-perishable food items on behalf of the Leyden Food Pantry. Donations can be dropped off at City Hall, 55 E. North Avenue.

The Police Dept. also collections donations of money, gift cards and toys for the holidays. They also have an “Adopt a Child off the Angel Tree for Christmas” program. For more information regarding this program, contact the police department at 708-531-5755.

Besides food, other items are greatly needed as well – shampoo, soap, toothpaste, diapers, pet food, laundry supplies – anything that a household would need to function.

I wish all of you a safe, healthy and happy holiday season!
