D76 was able to provide Thanksgiving meals and free coats to our students and their families on Friday, November 20 in collaboration with D75, D79, D120 and The Chapel Mundelein. D76 identified and invited families in need who left with a complete Thanksgiving meal which were donated by community and staff members who were able to put together premade boxes or donate individual items. Collaboratively, around 410 coats were ordered and provided to those families thanks to Operation Warm. Our D76 PTO contributed hats, scarves and gloves as an additional bonus for our families on this day.
Additionally, Northern Illinois Food Bank hosted a mobile event the same day/time at MHS allowing for other community members and families to openly attend. D76 appreciates the willingness to help from our parents and community members during this time. Collaboratively, these efforts help to create holiday experiences for our students and families. We sincerely thank you.
