Harvey’s First Ward Alderwoman, Shirley Drewinski ensures that residents in her ward are well and safe during the coronavirus pandemic. Since the March 20th shelter-in-place mandate, residents have been restricted to stay in their homes until the executive order is uplifted. Since the pandemic started, Drewinksi checks in on residents to see how things are going.

“I reached out to more than 315 residents in our ward, and we made sure that they were called. We wanted to know what their needs were and we did our best to accommodate them. We also feed one-hundred staff members, including doctors and nurses, at Ingalls Memorial Hospital. Tequila Restaurant in Harvey prepared the ordered lunches,” she said.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Drewinski’s, May 16th, the All You Can Eat Pancake event was canceled. In lieu of the breakfast event, Drewinski held a social distance parade where a fleet of cars honked their horns and drove in a slow procession throughout the ward. Residents received tomato and peppers plants for their gardens instead. To get your plant, you may call the 2nd Ward Office at 708-596-7470.
