The Shopping Cart Brigade will perform simple choreography while pushing shopping carts on loan from Mariano's Fresh Market in Arlington Heights to collect the food donations. At last year's parade we collected 455 food items and $205 cash, all of which was later delivered to the Mount Prospect Food Pantry in Village Hall.
One of the goals of the St. Mark Lutheran Church and St. Raymond Catholic Church Ecumenical Ministry is to reach out to those in need, including those who are beyond the boundaries of our churches.
Look for us at No. 13 in this year's parade!
