Illinois State House District 53 issued the following announcement on Oct. 4
State Rep. Mark Walker, D-Arlington Heights, is thanking those who donated to his September Women’s Supply Drive in partnership with the area League of Women Voters chapter benefiting Northwest Compass.
“We had a hugely successful supply drive that will surely help many in our community in need of our support,” Walker said. “Northwest Compass does great work helping those experiencing hardship. I’m glad our office could help their important mission, and we certainly couldn’t have done it without the partnership of our local League of Women Voters chapter.”
Northwest Compass, located in Mount Prospect, is a crisis intervention organization helping those experiencing difficult issues like economic and food insecurity, homelessness and near homelessness, and provides many safety-net programs for families, teens and veterans among others. Thanks to the drive’s many participants, Walker’s office collected nearly twenty bags full of various donations for Northwest Compass.
“What an outstanding drive,” Sonia Ivanov, executive director of Northwest Compass, said of the event. “Our clients who are facing economic and housing insecurity and homelessness will greatly benefit from these much-needed supplies. We even plan to deliver some hygiene items to the pilot food pantry for kids in need. We’re overwhelmed by the generosity of our community and the leadership of Rep. Mark Walker and the League of Women Voters and grateful for the support.”
