Byline: Matt Arado

Though we haven't reached Halloween yet, the Mount Prospect Human Services Department has already started thinking about the holiday season.

The village is asking the community to start thinking about making a cash donation for the program or donating food items. The following items are needed: turkeys, canned hams, stuffing, mashed potato mix, gravy, canned fruit, nuts, olives, yams and cranberry sauce. The village can't accept any opened, homemade or out-of-date food products.

The food can be dropped off at the Mount Prospect Senior Center, 50 S. Emerson St.

For details, call the human services department at (847) 870- 5680.
