With that in mind, Palatine Township officials have already started promoting a bevy of programs aimed at assisting those who are struggling financially.

First up is the township's effort to collect Thanksgiving baskets filled with all the fixings to prepare a traditional dinner. Anyone interested in helping should contact the township by Thursday, Nov. 1, and turn in baskets and donations between Nov. 12-14.

Palatine Township also runs an Adopt-A-Family program. Local social workers select families they think will benefit the most, and residents buy them gifts. The presents are distributed on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8.

Finally, the township will again organize its Angel Tree and Food Pantry Tree programs. Trees placed in the township office lobby will be covered with special ornaments. The angels contain the name, age and wish of children and seniors. The food pantry ornaments contain the names of most needed food and household items.
