During these trying times - do you need any help and do you want to support your local businesses at the same time?
I am the primary caregiver for my 74-year old mother who has underlying health issues.
As a result, she has been self-quarantined and I had to move out of our Northbrook house. Yet, other than her dogs, I am her only contact to the outside world. I suspect many others across our District are in a similar situation so I wanted to offer what I've learned to others.
I have been delivering food and supplies as many of the delivery services are overstretched. Each day, my kids call her on Facetime and we go in the evening to walk her dogs. We make sure to stay far away from her and to not touch any surfaces in her house.
Through this experience, I realized several of the local governments have created links to the businesses that remain open and if they offer curbside pickup and/or delivery. I have been using these links regularly.
Below you will find the links to the individual township websites across Congressional District 10.
If you don't see your community on the list, we're sorry. Some information is hard to find, but if you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the link we will get it added as quickly as possible. Also, please share other links you think would be useful to others as we get through these times together.
