The final collection day for the St. Jude's Ranch back-to-school drive was Sunday.

The donation drive was a month long and helped children in foster care.
Village East Cleaners, which has supported St. Jude’s Ranch for Children for more than a decade, has been collecting backpacks, washable markers and crayons, pens, No. 2 pencils, glue sticks, colored pencils, highlighters, pocket folders, calculators, 3-ring binders, Kleenex, cleaning wipes, geometry sets, staplers, correction fluid, flash drives, subject dividers, lined paper, hand sanitizer and printer paper, along with monetary donations at each of its two locations.
This year the Henderson cleaners partnered with Windy City Beefs ‘N Pizza and Windy City Beefs ‘N Dogs as each donor received a free beverage ticket to use at either restaurant.
On the school supply final collection day, Windy City Beefs ‘N Pizza celebrated with food specials and music.
