Clean out some closets to benefit 15 outstanding nonprofits who make a BIG difference in our community at this year’s Make A Difference Day.
All of the nonprofits listed below will be at the Indian Hill Train Station on Green Bay Road in Winnetka from 9-12 on Saturday, October 28th, waiting to gratefully accept items they desperately need. All YOU have to do is fill your car(s) with things you’d like to donate, bring them to the parking lot by the Indian Hill Train Station, and drop them off. We’ll even unload them for you!
This is a fun, easy and meaningful event that mobilizes our local community to do something good for the organizations who work year-round to do good for so many in our community. And it’s a great opportunity for your family, neighborhood, school or community group to work together to make an impact. See you there!
