GLEN ELLYN – Glen Crest Middle School instructional aide Kathy Otey (back row, from left), home arts teacher Kerry Waters and Principal Todd Schrage help students show the pillowcases they made.

Glen Crest staff and faculty are asking community members attending the DuPage County Fair to make pillowcases for chemotherapy patients at the Central DuPage Hospital Center and the Elmhurst Memorial Cancer Center. They hope to collect 200.

Interested participants are advised to visit www.brunswickquilters.com/HotDogPillowcaseInstructions.pdf.

Completed pillowcases can be dropped off at the county fair office from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday at 2015 Manchester Road, Wheaton. Call 630-668-6636 beforehand.
