Mundelein police, restaurant help 42 families in need
The Mundelein Police Department partnered with Elly's Pancake House and Fremont Township on Tuesday to provide Thanksgiving meals to 42 families in the community.
Elly's donated 76 turkeys which were delivered Tuesday morning from the police department to the families in need. The Mundelein After School Coalition and the Fremont Township girl scouts provided side dishes.
"This is the 13th year that we have teamed up with Elly's to help make the Thanksgiving holiday a little easier for some of our families in need," said Mundelein Police Chief Eric Guenther. "None of this would be possible without the assistance of Elly's. It's just a great feeling to give back to the community and help those who need it. This is the part of my job that makes it all worth it."
Families receiving the meals are chosen through contacts developed through the police department, school districts and local churches.
