Lincoln and First streets, Hinsdale

Amita St. Thomas Hospice once again will decorate its Tree of Remembrance outside of BMO Harris Bank. Community members are able to make a donation and have a loved one’s name listed on the boards beside the tree. Envelopes will be available next to the tree. Questions? Call the number listed above or send an email to [email protected].

Honor Central Teachers

Through Dec. 11


During these unusual times, rather than an individual gift, consider making a donation to the Hinsdale Central Foundation. This can include a teacher, coach, sponsor, counselor, or staff member. Parents also can donate in the name of their own former teachers/coaches. The honoree will receive a letter with the donor’s personal message included and a special certificate to display. Donations help support programming that benefits teachers, students, and families throughout Red Devil Nation. Send an email to [email protected] listing the personal to honor, his/her department or position, the amount of the donation and the personal message. Payment may be made at the website listed above or by Venmo to @HCHS-Foundation.

Sponsor a Homeless Animal


Animal sponsorships are a great way to support homeless animals and a great gift idea. For a minimum sponsorship of $50, recipients will help provide care for an animal of their choosing, receive a personalized gift sponsorship certificate and listing on the society’s website, if desired. Sponsorships can be purchased online. Questions? Call Deborah Kraus at (630) 323-5630, Ext. 32, or email her at [email protected].
