An open giveaway of donated items for people displaced by last month's devastating fire at the River Trails Condominiums in Prospect Heights began Thursday will continue through Saturday, Aug. 4 at Lakewood Chapel, 1307 E. Palatine Road in Arlington Heights.

The set hours for all three days are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Among the donated items available are clothes, food, bedding, baby cribs and tricycles.

Chapel staff said the timing is right for such a giveaway as most of the displaced residents have found their way to more permanent shelter, including hotel rooms, and are in need of longer-term essentials.

For more information, call Lakewood Chapel at (847) 259-0700.
