Thanks to A Great Community Effort, “Share Your Bounty” Provided Generously for Families in Need During Thanksgiving Week
We’d like to thank everyone who donated food to the New Trier Food Pantry and Good News Partners during Thanksgiving week. Thanks to a generous community, the New Trier Food Pantry collected 60+ baskets of fresh produce to offer to all its clients as a special holiday treat — and hundreds of bags of food were distributed to the families at Good News Partners. A wonderful way to kick off the holiday season!
It Was a Record-Breaking MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY on Saturday, October 28th!
Many thanks to all of the donors and volunteers who turned out to make this year’s Make A Difference Day our most successful ever! 15 local nonprofits collected almost 24,000 items from a steady stream of vehicles that filled the parking lot for hours. It was a great community effort that brought individuals, families, school and community groups together in support of organizations who make a difference in the lives of people in need right here in our community.
