A heartfelt “thank you” to & from Heartworks

Our Fourth Grade Service Club, Heartworks was busy the last 2 weeks. They prepared Trader Joe bags, promoted the Food Drive, recorded, delivered, and sorted all the food that Lincoln families donated to the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry.  Our generous families donated over 1500 items…what a wonderful effort by all.   Thank you, families,  for your generosity.  Thank you, Heartworks, for all your hard work for our community.
