Campaign Contributes to Local Toy/Activity Drive

On May 29th Family Service Association of Greater Elgin Area delivered “Family Fun Packages” to over 50 families, meeting the needs of over 150 children. The packages were aimed at providing toys, books, and games to families sheltering in place with limited resources. Candidate Martha Paschke hosted a local drive for these items, and collected two carloads full of games, puzzles, books, and other toys to donate. Of the donation, Paschke said, “It was heartening to see our community rally together to share these resources with our neighbors.” Other agencies who donated to the “Family Fun Packages,” included Elgin Partnership for Early Learning and Kiwanis Club of Elgin.
