CHMS Family in Need

CHMS Family,
One of our 6th grade students lost his mother to cancer over the Thanksgiving break.  The family is facing a substantial financial burden after incurring medical costs, lost wages of the father due to caregiving demands, and burial costs. They have lived in our community for years and have two sons, one at CHMS and one at Prospect. They are so appreciative of the support they are being offered during this difficult time.  If you are interested in learning more about how you can provide support to the family via a monetary donation or meal train participation, please click HERE to contact Kristin Korn, a CHMS parent or call or text her at 773-551-3423.

Toy Drive for Hinsdale Hospital

7th grader Kate Clopton and her sister Grace (CHMS ‘17) are once again collecting art supplies, books, crafts and small toys for the inpatient pediatric unit at Hinsdale Hospital. Anything from $1-20 is greatly appreciated as the hospital is right here in our community and they don’t have a playroom or receive any major fundraising efforts. The nursing staff love to give the kids something to do or something to take home.  Must be new!  Please bring to the collection box at CHMS.  The Clopton sisters and Hinsdale Hospital wish you many thanks.
