The Old Town Triangle Association is continuing to work to support Migrants and others in need. Working with Ascension Church at LaSalle and Elm, we are providing new and lightly worn winter clothing that is available at their “free store” for those in need. They can always use more help.
An Ad-Hoc Committee is helping to find ways that Old Town neighbors can best assist those in need. Other options are being brought to our attention and we will be reaching out for more help soon. There are a number of groups that are located very near to the Triangle and we want to make sure that our efforts will make a difference.
The Community Service Committee has not forgotten our local public servants who go above and beyond for us every day. A lunch for the 18th District Police officers was held on November 17th before the start of the holiday season, where officers take on extra shifts to manage high-profile events. We also dropped off cookies to both of our local Fire Stations to acknowledge the loss of their colleague and friend, Drew Price.
Reach out to the Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org to assist in any of these activities.
We need your continued support for some needs that have been identified.
If you are unable to donate items but would still like to contribute, you can make a donation by clicking here.
Laundry costs are high – we are attempting to offer cleaning of clothing and bedding to the migrants. One family for one week (about 45 lbs.- everything has been wet lately) costs about $40. Your donation of $20 or more in the Laundry section will help us to meet these needs. We can still use donations to help pay for the laundry services that were provided.
Note: donations to the Old Town Triangle Association are tax-deductible to the amount allowed by law (OTTA is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization).
Thank you – in advance for your assistance. Please contact the committee at email@example.com for any additional information.
