Spread Joy in Northbrook

Spread joy in Northbrook! The COVID-19 outbreak has got a lot of us feeling down, but Northbrook community members are performing small acts of kindness to brighten things. From encouraging chalk messages and creative window displays to paper heart scavenger hunts and balloon art, residents are bringing a little happiness to Northbrook!
