EVENT UPDATE: Thank you Neighbors! This year the donations of non-perishable food to Northwest Compass Food Connection equaled 27,000 pounds—more than 3x last year’s collection! We are grateful to the NALC for coordinating this effort each year, and thankful to the post office staff, Mount Prospect residents and our own volunteers for the overwhelming support to this year’s drive.
