North Chicago Community Partners were very appreciative of the toiletries that were collected and donated last month. Financial insecurity is a global issue, including many residents of North Chicago. August 2023
Look at all these happy faces!
CNCC wants to send out a very special Thank You to our member, George Sianis; Arlington Pediatric therapist, Jennifer Scoggins; and future Eagle Scout, Jack Jones for giving CNCC the opportunity to help with our donations for three electric cars going to special needs children in their "Go Baby Go" project.
The Boy Scouts take these electric vehicles of different sizes and adapt them to each child to give them the mobility they would not otherwise have. It's a great cause and we are honored to help!
