Devastated by the recent Tropical Storm Arthur, residents of Belize City are in need of clothing and food.
To help the residents in Evanston’s Sister City, the City of Evanston is accepting donations of clothing and non-perishable food items through the end of July. These donations will be transported to Belize City.
Drop off your donations of clothing and food at Chandler-Newberger Center, 1028 Central St.; Evanston Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.; Robert Crown Center, 1701 Main St.; Fire Department Administration, 909 Lake St.; Fleetwood/Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St.; and the Levy Senior Center, 300 Dodge Ave.
Monetary donations will also be accepted. Community members can make checks out to the Evanston/Belize Sister City Committee and mail the donations to the attention of Sam Hunter, Evanston Fire Headquarters, 909 Lake St., Evanston, IL 60201.
