It’s that time of the year when the magic of the winter holidays begins to take over the town! To ensure every Evanston family gets to celebrate this holiday season, Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl calls on all residents, community members and visitors, young and old, to participate in the sixth annual Holiday Food & Toy Drive. Help local families in need by providing food, toys and financial donations through Friday, December 12.
