How can I participate in the Skokie Spirit Shines Through campaign?

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 info@skokie.org for publishing consideration. Early next week, we will launch a new Skokie Spirit Shines Through! section on the Village website, and will include some stories and photos in the next edition of NewSkokie. Thank you!

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.
