A note from Supervisor Goldberg
Goldberg
For most of us a trip to the grocery store, walking the aisles with the dozens of choices in each category is a given. Since childhood the routine is instilled, write a list, visit the store, make your purchases and the cupboard is full. The stark reality for many of the clients we serve is that the money needed to visit the grocery store is far from "a given." Many of our clients have faced serious setbacks in life such as unforeseen unemployment, catastropic illness, family tragedy, or simply not enough income to make ends meet.

Since the farm community beginnings of township government back in 1850, neighbors rallied around one another in times of need. In the present we tend to many of the same basic needs previous generations addressed. There really are no "givens" for any of us. That's why our staff and volunteers are here Monday through Friday at the New Trier Township Food Pantry, making a difference, helping neighbors complete their grocery list. We couldn't do it without you and are grateful for your ongoing support of our pantry.

With gratitude,
Alan


Valley Lodge Helps Keep Food Pantry Shelves Full
We are extremely grateful to Cris Pazmino of the Valley Lodge in Wilmette, who presented a check for $379 to Supervisor Goldberg. The donation was the result of a restaurant promotion held June 14th, where the Valley Lodge donated 15% of the day's receipts. These funds will help us fill our shelves during the summer months when donation decrease due to vacation and activities.

Special thanks to Trustee Gail Schnitzer Eisenberg and Heather Oliver, Marketing Manager Valley at the Valley Lodge for their work orchestrating this event.

Partnerships with local businesses help us assist neighbors in need. We thank you.
