Salata is hosting a fundraiser throughout the month of October for the Katie Samsel fund (see below). Dine at Salata, and every day through October they will donate 15% of your bill back to the fund. Each school in the district is given a specific day to benefit this fund. Our date at Poe is October 25, 2017. Please see flyer for more details. Salata is located at 1083 E. Lake Cook Road in Wheeling, IL.
About the fund:
Katie Samsel was the principal of Whitman Elementary School. When she died in 1974, a memorial fund was created by her family with the purpose of helping School District 21 students and their families in an emergency or hardship situation.
The function of the fund has varied, from providing eyeglasses to students in need, to helping families that were displaced from their homes due to fire or flood. The fund affords flexibility to meet student and family needs in the most appropriate way and at the most appropriate time.
Donations to the Katie Samsel fund are accepted year-round. If you would like to contribute, checks may be made out to “School District 21”. Donations can be dropped off at the Gill Administration Center in person or mailed to:
Katie Samsel Fund Committee
CCSD21 Gill Administration Center

Wheeling, Illinois 60090
If you choose to mail in a donation and would like a letter in return acknowledging your donation, please be sure to include a note requesting such a letter with your check, as well as the address where the letter should be mailed.
