History Center holds food drive

Evanston Girl Scouts have pitched in to create fliers to promote the Evanston History Center’s 4th Annual Food Drive at the Dawes House this week.

The scouts, under the leadership of Eva Schwinge, put their creative skills to work.

The flyers range from colorful collages to dramatic drawings illustrating the vast need for food donations to help feed area residents. Girls as young as age five worked to create eye-catching flyers and come up with creative ways to ask members of the community to participate in the drive.

The Evanston Girl Scouts who made the flyers include members of the Cadette Girl Scouts Troop 11, Daisy Troop 31, and Junior Girl Scouts 6175.

More of the fliers can be seen on the history center’s website.

The food drive begins Thursday and runs through Sunday. Donations of nutritious, non-perishable food (no glass, please) will be accepted at the Dawes House 225 Greenwood St., from 1 to 4 p.m. each day of the drive. Free on-street parking is available in front of the building.

All food collected goes to the Greater Chicago Food Depository and will benefit area residents, including people living in Evanston.
