MORAINE TOWNSHIP FOOD PANTRY IS MOVING & IMPROVING AND NEEDS YOUR HELP TO MAKE IT WONDERFUL!
Moraine Township, set to open its new client choice food pantry in early 2018, has announced a unique giving opportunity for those who'd like to help make the new space complete and find the perfect gift for the person who has everything!

The pantry has established a "wish list" of necessary but unusual items needed to equip its new client-choice Pantry. "We're hoping the community will think outside of the box when gift giving for any occasion, and give these items in someone's honor or memory to help our Township's struggling families for years to come," said Township Supervisor Anne Flanigan Bassi.

"With 27% of our Highland Park / Highwood elementary students from low-income families and 6,000 resident-visits to our pantry in the last 12 months, food insecurity is a reality in our community," noted Township Trustee Amy Zisook. "The items on our wish list are necessary to equip our new Pantry serve our client population.""

To take part in this great opportunity to help our struggling neighbors, view the complete wish list or click here to read more.

Santa greets child at Moraine Township's Holiday Gift Drive: Their smiles could light up a city!
As he greeted children to distribute holiday gifts at Moraine Township's Annual Phyllis Santullano Holiday Gift Drive, Santa Claus observed that "their smiles could light up our city." Santa's elves were ably assisted by generous sponsors from the Highland Park/Highwood community who were anonymously matched with children.

"We are reminded daily of how fortunate we are to live in a community with a spirit of generosity and compassion that is second to none," noted Event Co-Chair Sue Kach.

Moraine Township partners with the community and schools for this effort. This year's total of 620 children receiving gifts is an increase over prior years. School social workers and counselors nominate families who are struggling financially, and every child in that family is sponsored. Click to read more.
