Our Winnetka office, located at 538 Chestnut, is collecting books for two different organizations now through August 17th. New books will be accepted for Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago and new and gently used books, games and art supplies will be collected for Haven Youth and Family Services in Wilmette. While everyone is familiar with the great work Lurie Children’s does, you might not be familiar with Haven Youth and Family Services. They foster the mental health of youth and their families in the community through prevention, intervention and therapy programs. They are committed to supporting youth 24-hours a day to skillfully navigate through adolescence. Consider donating today!
If you have gently used children’s books, now is a great time to pass them along to a child who might not have access to books. New books for children birth to 6th grade are also welcome. Located at 778 N. Western, the office, in conjunction with the KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation, will collect books from June 6th through June 13th. Everyone in the community is invited to drop off a book, or even purchase one for donation at nearby Lake Forest Book Store.
