Holiday Fund Raising Campaign to Benefit Chicago Kids!

 

New Trier Neighbors is partnering 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!  We are out to raise $12,000 by December 24, 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! For more information and to donate, please click here now:

 

Support local businesses with your online holiday shopping dollars!

 

Shopping online from your couch is one of the great conveniences of modern life.  But, as with many aspects of progress, this convenient trend can cut out local businesses in the process.

 

But some local businesses, such as Runners’ Edge in Wilmette, have figured out how to participate in the online shopping world with locally.com, a new way to shop local businesses from your computer or phone any time day or night.  Click here to read more.

Three “Mix-n-Mingles” in Winnetka, including hosting our local village trustees and school board members, and speakers including Ted Dabrowski from Wirepoints and Bob Muzikowski of Chicago Hope Academy.

Exposing race-based hiring practices and teacher segregation at a public school in Evanston. Related media coverage appeared in The Wall Street Journal, National Review, and Crain’s Chicago Business.

Holding productive discussions with senior New Trier High school administrators on both exposing students to more intellectual diversity, and listening to students who are concerned about political bias in the classroom.

Publishing weekly newsletters keeping North Shore residents up to date on politicized “gun walkouts,” sexuality surveys in schools, and other “must-know” information that you won’t find anywhere else.
