Thank you to all the volunteers that participated in the 2015 Unshelter Homeless Count in Suburban Cook County!
Over 250 low-income children received gifts this year as a part of the 2014 Northwest Compass Holiday Program! Donors from all over the Northwest Suburbs came together and sponsored the children to receive gifts, they otherwise would not. The gifts the children received were necessities that their parents could not afford, such as, shoes, boots, winter jackets, pants, sweaters, books, and much more.
​ Thank to our donors for their selfless act of kindness: Addison Group, Assurance Insurance, Beat Street, Chase Bank, Chicago Northwest Suburban Alumni Panhellenic, Dunton House Restaurant, Illinois Federation of Teachers, John Hersey High School, Northwest Central Dispatch 911 Service, NSSEO, Old Navy, PepsiCo, Prospect High School, Society of Dermatologic Surgeons, and St. Raymond’s Parish. We also cannot forget to mention the Christian Church of Arlington Heights for allowing Northwest Compass to use their space to distribute the gifts to the families! What a success!
Robert Bosch Corporation, a power tool company not only cares about being the leading global provider of technology and services, but also about strengthening their local communities. On February 12, employees from Bosch, in Mount Prospect, came to Northwest Compass and packed boxes for our Mobile Food Connection.​
The Mobile Food Connection is a service within the Food Connection Program at Northwest Compass. The service distributes food to areas in need, areas that do not have enough access to food. Those in need, not only get easy access to food, but they also got the opportunity to seek additional safety-net resources from Northwest Compass.
The group of volunteers donated over 2 hours of time, and packed over 150 boxes, containing nutritional food! They know their hard work was going to pay off, and that the Mobile Food Connection that took place later in February at Palatine High School, would assist numerous students and their families!
Thank you to Bosch employees: Sierra Anderson, Suzanne Jordan, Matt Manolkis, Hasina Dossaji, Eric Crtiz, Rene Torres, Michael Randcanu, Dan Wenzel, Michael Karch, Kathleen Pawloski, Karen Chang, Xiao-Feng John Hsu, Tadhg Moviavty, Scott Pavlik, Brooke Kashnwski, & Vickie Katradis. You truly made a difference in the lives of Palatine residents!

It's National Volunteer Week!
