Our Place of New Trier Township Visits Ravinia

This past Tuesday and Wednesday, Our Place of New Trier Township, visited us at Ravinia Festival to help pack holiday gift bags. Our Place is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support teens and young adults with developmental disabilities so they can live meaningful, productive lives in their community. The last time they visited the festival was May 14 when they helped us plant flowers in a garden off the pavilion. They did such an amazing job we had to have them back. They are a truly remarkable group of young individuals and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship. Over two days this week they packed a mind-blowing 1,800 holiday bags! Thank you so much from all of us at Ravinia. Check out the full gallery at Picasa.
