Places to Donate?

Are there any places around the neighborhood to donate clothes that directly give people in need the clothes? I'd rather do that than a place where they resell them.

Meanwhile, over at Northeastern, students and faculty gathered last Wednesday on the main campus near Foster and Kimball to hear Democratic gubernatorial candidates Ameya Pawar and Daniel Biss lambaste Rauner for running our state colleges and universities into the ground.

    TO: University Community

    FROM: Richard J. Helldobler, Interim President

    RE: University Budget Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, May 4

    As we near the end of our spring semester -- and enter our 23rd month without a state budget -- I invite all members of our University Community to attend a Budget Town Hall meeting that I -- along with the Vice Presidents -- will host on Thursday, May 4, from 3:05 to 4:05 p.m. in the Main Campus Auditorium. So that those who are unable to attend in person may watch the meeting, I have arranged for a livestream of the event that will be accessible online at http://connectcast.tv/neiustream.

    We will discuss our current budget, the situation in Springfield, and our next steps. There will be time to answer questions from the audience at the end. If you are unable to be there to ask a question, or would like to submit a question in advance, feel free to send them to the University's Feedback Form at www.neiu.edu/feedback.

    Please don't forget that Monday is a furlough day, and the University will be closed. The University will reopen on Tuesday. We hope to see you at next Thursday's Town Hall meeting.

    At NEIU, we have a budget. It'd be nice if our "Governor" did the same.

    Where to Watch the Blackhawks' Playoff Games in Chicago
    If attending a game is out of the picture, consider watching the game somewhere where you can still be surrounded by fellow fans. Whether the game is home or away, you can still catch the excitement at one, or a few, of the many official Blackhawks bars across Chicago.
