A Heartfelt Thank-you from HEARTWORKS:

Dear Lincoln Families,

Thank you for your generosity during the Fall Food Drive!  Our school donated over 1500 items to the Oak Park/ River Forest Food Pantry.  Thank you for helping our neighbors who need food for their families. The Food Pantry said we should know that our donations made a difference in people’s lives!

Thanks!  Heartworks
