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.

Working alongside letter carriers and post office staff, 45 Northwest Compass volunteers provided 99 hours of service to retrieve and begin sorting food from 385 postal bins. Check out photos from the day of (courtesy of Justin S. Goh):

NWC COMMUNITY

The Summer solstice—the first day of Summer and longest day of the year—was a clear, crisp day in Mount Prospect. Many organizations serving the homeless have selected the Summer solstice to commemorate those who have overcome homelessness, and this seemed a fitting day to commemorate the Grand Opening of Northwest Compass's Coordinated Entry Walk-in Center. NWC was joined by Mount Prospect mayor, Arlene Juracek, District Director for Illinois' 56th District Mussman, Christi Wessel and representatives from Mount Prospect, Des Plaines, Journeys, Elk Grove Village Township, St. Mary's Services, Center of Concern and Harper College to mark the occasion. As a lead agency in the North for Coordinated Entry, NWC looks forward to working closely with agency partners to help end homelessness in our community.
