I went to the Trib to catch the latest on the storm that came through this afternoon. I heard there were some scary power lines down in Des Plaines. I caught a link about a fire destroying a building in Palatine. It was a charity resale shop belonging to the Wings program. It stands for Women in Need Growing Stronger and it provides emergency assistance and shelter for homeless and abused women and children.
Wings runs three retail shops in the suburbs – the other two are in Schaumburg and Niles. If you have the opportunity this weekend, I am sure they could use all the donations – and shoppers! – they can get.
