Letter: Township thanks North Riverside library for reading program

To the Editor:

I wish to thank the North Riverside library for its Youth Summer Reading Program. For each book a child read, they obtained nonperishable food items that were donated to the Riverside Township Food Pantry. On Nov. 2, the children presented me with the food and a very generous check that will immediately go towards restocking our food pantry.

On behalf of the Riverside Township Board, staff and residents I thank all of the North Riverside children who participated in this program and applaud you for your thoughtfulness and generosity.
