$12,000 raised to send Woodlawn kids to camp!

 

New Trier Neighbors has partnered with Pastor Corey Brooks, of New Beginnings Church and Project Hood in Woodlawn, to send kids from Chicago’s south side community to a transformational week of summer camp in Golden, Missouri, next summer!

 

With the help of generous New Trier Neighbors, we reached our goal of raising $12,000, which will send up to 20 kids to camp. Many of the young people offered this opportunity will have never before set foot out of Chicago!  Thank you!

January 31

Thanks to former State Representative Jeanne Ives and State Representative Tom Morrison for joining us at our Mix-n-Mingle on January 31. More than 40 New Trier Neighbors from all over the North Shore braved the bitter cold and came out to hear about and ask questions about the issues which are quickly destroying Illinois’ future: the pension crisis, and dramatically escalating taxes.
