HOMEWOOD GIVING TREE — Homewood Public Works Department is partnering with District 153 for the annual Giving Tree initiative, which aims to assist local families in need. To participate, visit village hall, 2020 Chestnut Road. The tree is inside the west entrance. Pick up an ornament from the Giving Tree to learn the needs and wishes of a child. For those who prefer to make cash donations instead of purchasing gifts, village staff will use contributions to purchase gifts. For more information or to drop off your donations, please contact Lisa Jones at the Public Works Department at 708-206-2906. All items or cash donations are needed prior to Dec. 20.
