Remember the days of a neighbor sharing a cup of sugar? We here at Patch know that those acts of kindness—both big and small—continue even today, particularly in the very giving community of Naperville. This column, Neighbors in Need, will spotlight organizations and groups seeking donations or items in need. If you belong to a group or organization that has a specific request, e-mail Local Editor Mary Ann Lopez at email@example.com, referencing “Neighbors in Need."
