Dear friends,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration! Now it’s time to turn our minds to a day keeping with the spirit of the season: Giving Tuesday.

Today is a day to reflect on our own blessings and try to pay it forward. As you’re contemplating your own holiday giving, consider the network of organizations that serve our community and could use your support. These groups help our neighbors put food on the table, settle in new homes and stay warm during the winter.

If you can lend a helping hand, please review the list of donation opportunities for nonprofit and social service organizations in District 7 here.

To ensure your donation makes the biggest possible impact, I encourage you to explore how these organizations have changed operations during the pandemic. For example, some organizations are asking for e-gift cards or directing donors to an Amazon Wishlist this year to help protect donors, volunteers and the community.

If there is a local organization you feel should be added to this list, please reply to this email or call my office at 773-769-1717 with their information.

Stay well – don’t forget to wash your hands frequently and wear a mask to help keep our friends, family and neighbors safe this holiday season.
