Help Wanted

Five years ago, I started the Helping Hands Campaign drive in order to assist some of those who are less fortunate in my district. From now through the New Year, we’ll be collecting new hats, scarves, gloves, and other clothing, as well as toiletries and household items. Everything we collect will be given to local service agencies who will distribute the items to those who need it most.

With so many community organizations participating, I am confident that we'll be able to help a lot of families this year. I want to thank the following groups for helping to make this program a success.

Bucktown Community Organization

Greater Rockwell Organization

Lincoln/Belmont Branch Library

Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce

Roscoe Village Neighbors

Scents and Sensibility

South Lakeview Neighbors

Sulzer Regional Library

West Lakeview Neighbors

Wicker Park and Bucktown Chamber of Commerce

Wrightwood Neighbors Association

Young Chicago Lakefront

If you would like to donate items, drop boxes will be available at my district office, 2539 North Southport; Scents and Sensibility, 4654 North Rockwell, Lincoln/Belmont Branch Library, 1659 West Melrose; Sulzer Regional Library, 4455 North Lincoln Avenue; and the Wicker Park/Bucktownn Chamber of Commerce, 1601 North Milwaukee Avenue, 2nd floor.
