GPAD Monthly Meeting May 4: Addressing Mental Health Crisis--What We Can Do

Join us at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 4 for our monthly meeting. Leaders from the local chapter of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) and Live4Lali, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping families facing drug addiction, will be on hand for a discussion on what we can do to improve mental health services in the Palatine area. Grocery card food drive for Palatine fire victims: on March 19, dozens of Palatine residents were displaced when a fire at their apartment building caused the roof to collapse. Despite a community-wide effort to help those families, their need is still ongoing. Rather than a food drive, we are collecting grocery gift cards so the families affected can purchase needed items. You can drop off your gift card donation at the May 4 meeting. We will turn the gift cards over to All Saints Food Pantry, which operates the food pantry at Partners for Our Communities. Kindly sign up for the May 4 meeting on Mental Health Issues here. The meeting will be 7 to 8:30 p.m. at GPAD offices, 1310 W. Northwest Hwy, Arlington Heights.
