In the summer of 2020, Arlington Cares met an Arlington Heights family who had recently been displaced by a home fire. Through a partnership with Mattress Firm, we were able to provide new mattresses for all five family members. We then worked with Thomas Middle school to collect other items such as clothing, bedding, furnishings, and more. Runner’s High ‘n Tri also heard about the family and gave each family member a pair of custom fitted gym shoes. They also paid for the family to have dinner in downtown Arlington Heights. We are truly grateful to the community for coming together to help this family.
