About This Issue

Happy Holidays! Barrington Giving Day Executive Director Dori Hough leads an army of sponsors and volunteers for an annual event that helps lift spirits during the holidays. One of Barrington’s longest-running charities, Barrington Giving Day offers its guests who live within Barrington 220 boundaries a dignified shopping experience of toys, clothing, and provisions to ease their financial burdens and bring joy and comfort to their families. BGD brings the community together in service to others, while making our entire community stronger. Photography by Linda M. Barrett.
