Hawthorn District 73 Students Have Fun While Giving Back to the Community
Fourth and fifth grade students at two Hawthorn District 73 schools in Vernon Hills enjoyed the opportunity to give back to the community. On December 5, approximately 50 students went from floor to floor at Townline Elementary and the School of Dual Language, collecting boxes of nonperishable food items and supplies, such as toothpaste and pancake mix, from approximately 38 classrooms. The students piled the items into a truck bound for the Sharing Hands Food Pantry. The items, which were donated by Hawthorn families during a food drive, will go to community members in need.
