CHARACTER COUNTS, a national nonpartisan and nonsectarian alliance of over 533 organizations, was founded in 1993 by the Josephine Institute of Ethics. It is dedicated to strengthening the character of American children and adults by using a consistent set of ethical values: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.
CHARACTER COUNTS! in Glenview began in 1996 by the Village Values Project. The working committee, which represents many community groups, meets monthly to plan and coordinate activities that promote the Six Pillars of Character throughout our entire community.
Save the date: Stay tuned for details of the 2nd Annual Lotsa Lotsa Pasta Family Dinner event on October 23, 2012 in the cafeteria at Glenbrook South High School! What a special evening of all-you-can eat pasta and salad in support of the Northfield Township Food Pantry and CHARACTER COUNTS!
Information to follow regarding CHARACTER COUNTS! week in October, which includes a community-wide food drive to benefit the Northfield Township Food Pantry and our annual poster contest.
