Take Care Packages For Migrant Families
Project Sponsor: Rotary Club of Highland Park/Highwood (#3127)
Subject: Support Needed for "Take Care" Packages for Migrant Children Arriving in the Chicago Area
Dear Rotary Club Presidents and Members of District 6440,
You are invited to join the Highland Park/Highwood Rotary Club make a tremendous difference in our region.  Our Rotary Club, in collaboration with the City of Highland Park and SaLT (Service and Learning Together) are inviting all Rotary Clubs in District 6440 to contribute to our "Take Care" Packages project, specifically directed towards migrants being bused to Chicago from Texas.
Over the past year, the number of migrants arriving in Chicago has seen a substantial increase, and the situation has become more pressing. In October 2023, Texas Governor Abbott threatened to send 20 to 25 buses daily, highlighting the gravity of the situation. New shelters are emerging around the City of Chicago almost weekly to accommodate the growing numbers.
The "Take Care" Packages are designed to provide essential items for these migrants, particularly children, offering them comfort and support during a challenging transition. The packages come in three varieties:
1. Healthcare and hygiene products
2. Snacks, winter clothing, and a stuffed animal
3. For babies: diapers, wipes, and other essential baby products
Each care package is estimated to cost $35, and our goal is to create a continuous supply to meet the increasing needs of migrant children arriving in Chicago.
We are seeking your Rotary Club's support to sponsor a minimum of 10 "Take Care" Packages, equivalent to a donation of $350. Your generous contribution will play a crucial role in ensuring that these children receive the care and support they need during these challenging times.
To make your contribution, please visit the Rotary Club of Highland Park/Highwood's homepage, where you will find a secure donation portal.
Thank you all who joined us for an evening of gratitude and support for our City's employees and first responders! Many thanks to Exmoor Country Club for the beautiful venue and delicious meal. And, of course, we thank our many sponsors, especially  Diamond Sponsor, First Bank of Highland Park!
