Our three state representatives have been busy passing historic legislation in Springfield this session. Greater Palatine Area Democrats is grateful that all three are available to share their accomplishments at our volunteer meeting. Wheeling Township Democrats are a cosponsor of this event. Candidates for the 2024 Primary are welcome! Please sign up here.
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.
