See the new Skokie Spirit Shines Through! page with photos and messages of hope, encouragement and support from your Skokie neighbors!
Hope - and Skokie’s strong community spirit - are stronger than fear! Please share your hope and community spirit by sending a poster, picture, or brief info on how you and your neighbors are staying connected to firstname.lastname@example.org for publishing consideration on the new Skokie Spirit Shines Through! webpage and in the next edition of NewSkokie. Thank you!
The Skokie Community Foundation has launched a new Skokie Spirit Shines Through fundraising campaign! See details on how you can support the campaign. Funds raised through this effort will be given to the Village’s Office of Human Services for distribution to assist our Skokie neighbors in need during this difficult time. The Village is grateful to the Skokie Community Foundation for their partnership in this effort!
Please be a good neighbor during these difficult times. Governor Pritzker has stated, "All of us have a part to play. Be a helper." A wonderful way to feel better is to help someone else feel better, or safer or calmer. Look for ways to help others, exchange phone numbers with your neighbors, and agree to check in with each other, help each other with shopping or food delivery. Consider safe ways to help through your neighborhood connections like Facebook and Nextdoor. Technology and our fast society have isolated us from our neighbors, but technology also offers safe ways to stay connected. Now is the time to support each other in safe and healthy ways.
