For several years, The Children’s School family has given generously to Housing Forward by packing hundreds of lunches for our clients. They do this because a large part of the school’s philosophy centers around a commitment to social justice and caring participation in their wider community. Because Covid-19 curtailed many of their regular volunteer activities, the school decided to continue honoring the critical work we do by sharing with us donations made during their annual fundraising appeal.
Not long after putting out a call on social media for face mask donations, we received a delivery of 1,000 cotton masks from Ruggable.
This past weekend, Hidden Valley Ranch and Gino’s East of Wheaton and Gino’s East of South Barrington partnered to respond to the needs of people who have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan came together when Sarah Dolan, a member of the Housing Forward Board of Directors, connected the Maywood nonprofit agency with offers of help from the makers of Hidden Valley Ranch, and two Gino’s East franchises.
