Sometimes, my technology skills are lacking. I could not figure out how to repost the original post here. I know that Alderman Debra Silverstein, 50th Ward is as proud an appreciative of the amazing work being done in the ward as I am. This was posted today by West Ridge Community Response Team. There is also a #lovefridgechicago at the Indo-American Center "As we were loading up our free dry pantry with a donation from ICNA The Ark rolled over with several more boxes of donated food items. Four people took what they needed during the unload and there’s still plenty more to go around (pictures). Head on over and take what you need! 🥰 Loving this community today and always 🥰"@
