HIGHLAND PARK/HIGHWOOD ROTARY CLUB PROVIDES FINANCIAL GRANTS TO SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC 

Non-profit organizations granted funds to help support residents 

HIGHLAND PARK/HIGHWOOD, IL (April 20, 2020): The Highland Park/Highwood Rotary Club has generously set up a Relief Fund to donate approximately $10,000 to support organizations who are providing direct services and assistance to individuals impacted by COVID-19. The grants will support Moraine Township Food Pantry, Family Service of Lake County, and other eligible non-profit organizations providing direct services and assistance to individuals impacted by the virus. 

“While local nonprofits are rising to help the community’s most vulnerable residents meet the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we knew their own resources are being challenged as well,” stated Rotary President Paul Munk. “The Rotary grants will support a variety of response activities to serve Highland Park and Highwood residents.” 

Moraine Township has converted their food pantry to a drive-through to serve all Township residents and families of Highland Park/Highwood students. They have reached out to more 300 low-income seniors to conduct wellness checks, and they operate a door-to-door van with enhanced sanitation protocols for residents in need of dialysis and other life-saving medical treatments. Emergency assistance for rent and other critical needs, as well as bi-lingual help signing up for SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), Medicaid, TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), health insurance and other resources is available by calling 847-432-3240 or emailing info@morainetownship.org. Further information about their services to the public can be found at morainetownship.org

Family Service of Lake County has also increased services during this pandemic. Families are unable to meet financial obligations and food, medical care, medicine and household supplies are needed daily. Family Service is also providing counseling, education and mentoring to people of all ages, including bilingual and bicultural counseling. Family Service can be contacted at www.famservice.org

Grants are also available to non-profit organizations serving Highland Park and Highwood who are providing direct services to residents. Organizations can apply by emailing HPHWrotary@gmail.com 

with your organization name, service offered to Highland Park/Highwood residents, number of individuals served, impacts from COVID-19 and funding request. Grants will be determined as applications are received.
