Submitted by Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center

The Lindenhurst Early Childhood Center's children, parents and staff provided the PLAN Food Pantry, The Lake Villa Food Pantry, The Open Arms Mission and DCFS more than 400 boxes (donated by ULINE) Dec. 15.

 

Santa was a visitor. Usually Santa is for "getting," but this time he was for rooting the children on for being givers.

This is LECC's 24th "Gift of Giving" event, which also included new toys given to agencies in Lake County and 140 Adopt-an-Angel wish-lists filled for children in DCFS Foster Care.
