On Dec. 11, a truck delivered mounds of coats and toys to the Austin Community Family Center, 501 N. Central Ave. The delivery was the result of a second annual toy drive sponsored by Oak Park-based Suburban Unity Alliance, Oak Park and River Forest High School, the Oak Park Temple and EAU Methodist Church. 

The collaborators facilitated the drive over the month of December. 

“The health of one community directly impacts the health of another and it is important for our communities to work together,” said Anthony Clark, the founder and executive director of Suburban Unity Alliance.
