Thank you to everyone who came out to make blankets with us today. We had a wonderful turnout with families of all ages. We made over a dozen blankets for community members and collected items for the Niles Family Services food pantry.

We are so grateful to the Niles Township Government and Township Supervisor Bonnie Kahn Ognisanti for providing supplies and distribution and to Village of Niles - Municipality Family Services for hosting our group.

We support the freedom to read.

Happy ! This week, we celebrate the freedom to read freely!

In these challenging times, it's more critical than ever to rally behind authors and works facing censorship attempts.

The theme for this year is "Let Freedom Read," and there is still an opportunity to gather resources centered around this theme for sharing and celebration, courtesy of the American Library Association (https://bit.ly/3RwjPxl).

The ILA Intellectual Freedom Committee is orchestrating a social media takeover of ILA's platforms, offering enlightening videos and valuable insights about banned books.

If you haven't already, make sure to follow ILA on the various social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and X (formerly Twitter) because you won't want to miss any of the compelling content they have in store!

Transparency in government means making decision making processes visible and accessible to everyone. We are extremely concerned about the outcome of this ordinance and we will be watching.

Changes to a draft ordinance over public assemblies in Niles have been agreed to by ACLU and village officials. “Frankly the conversations we had with the mayor, with police and others were incredibly productive,” ACLU of Illinois Director of Communications and Public Policy Ed Yohnka told the J...

Join Niles United and VFW Post 3579 Niles Memorial as we commemorate the 9/11 Day of Remembrance and Service by collecting move-in essentials to assist our veterans on Saturday, September 9 at the Niles Memorial VFW at 7255 N Caldwell Ave from 9am to 1pm.

Although most veterans re-enter civilian life successfully and go on to lead productive lives, on any given night the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimates that 40,056 veterans are homeless.

When a veteran leaves a shelter or transitional housing and moves to a permanent residence, they often do not have the things needed to set up a new home. Aside from the obvious bedding and furniture, they need the basic items we often take for granted.
