Bremen Township Supervisor Thanks Volunteers and Staff

“A sincere thank you is in order to all the volunteers and Bremen Township staff who participated in the distribution of free produce to families in need at the Bremen Township Administrative Office on Friday, May 8th. In these challenging and uncertain times, it was uplifting to see so many individuals step up to help provide much needed assistance to the many families that have been impacted by the situation we are all in now. 

“Bremen Township, in partnership with Together We Cope and the Chicago Food Depository, has, and will continue to, distribute fresh free produce to all who are in need on the second Friday of each month. This past Friday, the township was able to serve approximately over 900 individuals with fresh fruit and vegetables, along with over 1,000 face masks, donated by New Faith Baptist Church, and have proven that in these difficult times there are so many unsung heroes within our local communities that go well and beyond being a good neighbor. Together, we too can all do our small part in being a good neighbor by insuring that our own neighbors, especially our most vulnerable, are checked on and make sure they are safe, secure, and that their basic needs are met. Kindness and being a good neighbor costs nothing, and will be appreciated by all.
