A Message from Midlothian Mayor Gary L’Heureux

I was made aware on March 24 that the Village of Midlothian has its first confirmed case of COVID-19. While we knew that it may only be a matter of time before it occurred, I wanted to take this moment to remind everyone of safety precautions and strongly urge residents to adhere to CDC safety guidelines.

Community Rallies to Provide Breakfast for Bremen Students

When Bremen High School students began approaching Bremen Social Worker and Homeless Liaison Theresa Connelly asking for breakfast, she immediately reached out to Bremen staff asking for assistance and potential donations. Amazed at the kindness of Bremen staff members, Connelly received enough donations to provide breakfast to in-need students for the entire first semester.

 

Currently, Connelly’s own office is stocked with breakfast items as well as multiple cabinets in a spare storage room. Connelly says she has also received $1,200 in generous monetary donations for food items. The most heartwarming part for Connelly is the several letters she has received with donations from current Bremen families, Bremen graduates, and parents whose children graduated from the school.


To provide a donation to Bremen High School’s breakfast program for students in need, contact Theresa Connelly at tconnelly@bhsd228.com.
