Please join me in congratulating District 14’s 2015 Unsung Heroine Award Recipient Pat Peterson! Pat is a long-time Northbrook resident. She is a retired Chicago Public School teacher, active in her community and a Northfield Township Food Pantry volunteer for seven years. Pat performs her volunteer duties – which include sorting donations, stocking shelves and assisting clients – with a smile and warmth. Pat is dedicated to the Pantry, always showing up for her shift and supporting various fundraisers.
Pat shares her commitment to serving her community with her grandkids, often bringing them to volunteer with her. In her spare time, Pat and her husband enjoy taking cruises.
The 14th District couldn’t prodivde this much-needed assistance to our neighbors in need without Pat’s hard work and dedication to strengthening the community. We are thankful to Northfield Township supervisor Jill Brickman and the entire Township staff for nominating Pat! We are also grateful for our Cook County Women’s Commissioner Linda Fleming for her guidance.
