District 30 Kids Care About Character Counts! Food Drive!

Character Counts! Week and the Kids Care Food Drive takes place on October 22-26, 2018. District 30 students will be collecting food items and monetary donations daily at Maple, Wescott and Willowbrook Schools. They will be collaborating with the students of Our Lady of Perpetual Help School (OLPH), and District 34 to help support the Northfield Township Food Pantry. 

"The Kids Care Food Drive comes along at the perfect time every year. Food supplies dwindle during the summer and early fall, and the drive fills our shelves and provides a tremendous amount of food for our neighbors in need," said Jill Brickman, supervisor of Northfield Township Food Pantry in Glenview.
