Northwestern College’s Bridgeview Campus Hosts Food & Toy Drive With Bridgeview Chamber of Commerce
[Bridgeview, IL] Northwestern College’s Bridgeview Campus (7725 S. Harlem Avenue), in conjunction with the Bridgeview Chamber of Commerce & Industry, is pleased to announce its participation once again in the Annual Bridgeview Chamber Food & Toy Drive. This is the 23rdyear that the Bridgeview Chamber has sponsored this drive to benefit the needy families and children of the Bridgeview Community. Once again, Northwestern College was an official drop-off site of food and toys for the community, as well as for the college’s own students, staff and faculty.
Collection of non-perishable food and new, unwrapped toys began on November 7th and concluded on December 12th. Amy Buoscio, Northwestern College’s Career Development Coordinator as well as a Bridgeview Chamber Director, spearheaded the efforts for the College. Students, faculty and staff of Northwestern College all participated in the event. Donation boxes were located in the front lobby of the College where members of the community could easily spot them, as well as to serve as a reminder for students and staff entering the building daily.
As part of the Bridgeview Community, Northwestern College assisted the Chamber in distributing toys to over 1,350 children in the community and making food drops to local food pantries and other community service organizations. In addition to Amy Buoscio, Northwestern College employees that participated in the distribution of food and toys on December 12th included Dan Miller, Ali Baker, Patti Fergus and Cindy Couch.
