As we prepare to gather together with family and friends later this week, I want to wish you and your family a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!
Foster Care 101.
Considering becoming a foster parent or adopting? Join me and Let It Be Us for this free virtual event covering everything from “What is foster care?” to “How do I become a licensed foster parent?”. During the 90-minute event, a Let It Be Us Foster Care Expert and a licensed foster parent will discuss how to obtain a foster care license, what it means to be a foster parent, how to navigate adoption through foster care, the trials, tribulations, challenges, love, and more.

Spread Good Cheer Collection Drive.
Join us in spreading good cheer this holiday season by donating new items to support local children. All donations will support Court Appointed Special Advocates – CASA of Lake and Cook Counties for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. Donations may be dropped off until December 20 at my Lake Zurich District Office Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or shipped directly to the office. The office will close at noon on November 24 in observance of Thanksgiving and reopen at 9 a.m. on November 29. Click Here for more information.
Season of Giving Blood Drive.
This December, I am partnering with Ela Township, Brightway Insurance and Versiti to host a blood drive at the Ela Township Building in Lake Zurich. COVID-19 caused a reduction in blood donation and the need is still high. Appointments to donate are available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on December 16.
