Dear Friends,

 

This upcoming Friday is World Diabetes Day, and my office is partnering with Swedish Covenant Hospital to provide free blood glucose screenings to the public from 9:15a.m. to 12pm at the Edgewater Public Library located at 1210 W. Elmdale in Chicago.

 

Nearly 50 percent of people living with diabetes don’t know they have the condition, which does not always cause obvious symptoms.

 

For the most accurrate screening do not to eat anything Friday morning. For more information, visit my website or call (773) 769-1717.

 

Sincerely,
Heather Steans

Dear Friends,

 

Bullying is one of the most serious problems facing our children. Far from being a rite of passage and an expected part of growing up, it’s a socially corrosive phenomenon that can stunt self-confidence and impede learning in school.

 

Rep. Kelly Cassidy, Rep. Greg Harris, Ald. Harry Osterman, the Chicago Public Schools, Lurie Children’s Hospital and I are pleased to present a discussion we hope will empower parents to talk with their children about bullying, effectively address incidents as they arise and work with schools to create an atmosphere where everyone is respected and bullying is never tolerated.

 

This town hall meeting is free to the public and will include pizza, a presentation and break-out discussion sessions. Child care will also be provided free of charge.

 

Please join us on Tuesday, Sept. 23, from 6 to 8:30 in the Senn High School Auditorium. I look forward to seeing you there.

Dear Friends,

 

I am proud to work with State Representative Kelly Cassidy and Alderman Harry Osterman once again to collect school supplies for low-income children in the neighborhood. The seventh annual "Sponsor-a-Student" is a partnership with Care for Real (Edgewater's food and clothing pantry), Howard Area Community Center, Housing Opportunity for Women and Family Matters to provide school supplies for children in Rogers Park, Edgewater and Uptown.

 

Students need a wide variety of supplies. Donors will sign up to sponsor a student, and each child will receive either an elementary school or high school bag filled with supplies. In addition, individual supplies such as pencils, pens, glue, scissors and backpacks will be accepted. Gift cards to stores selling school supplies are also welcomed and will be used to purchase supplies for students. Donations and backpacks received earlier than the end date are greatly appreciated to ensure students receive their supplies before the school year starts. The drive ends on Wednesday, August 20th. Thank you for your help!
