Demand is still high at local food pantries, nearly two years into this pandemic. We're helping All Saints' Food Pantry on Saturday, Dec. 18 with a holiday food drive. Help us provide food for 100 families! We're collecting household goods, nonperishable food goods, rice, and diapers of all sizes. You can also donate grocery store gift cards. Drop off will be Saturday, Dec. 18, 9:30 a.m. to noon at Greater Palatine Area Democrats offices, 1310 W. Northwest Highway. We're also seeking drivers to help deliver the donations right after the food drive that Saturday. Contact Melissa Ortega at [email protected] for more information.

We finally have new Congressional maps, and for the next ten years Palatine Township will be divided between the Eighth District, with Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, and the Fifth District, with Congressman Mike Quigley! You can see a map of the two districts here.
On Saturday, Dec. 11, come out to meet Congressman Quigley for a conversation about how we can all work to strengthen the new Fifth District and elect more Democrats and Progressives up and down the ballot. Sign up here.
