SPECIAL NON-TAX SUPPORTED PROGRAMS
A few things we love doing.
2023 Event Galleries
Ross Township coordinates food programs for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter for eligible Ross Township residents. Donations from local business, churches, schools, service clubs, organizations, labor unions and generous local private citizens help us with providing holiday dinners for residents of Ross Township.
Back to School Assistance Program
Ross Township partners with the Merrillville Police Department and Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #168 to assist children in back to school clothing and supplies.
Angel Tree Program
During the Christmas holiday season, presents and clothing are distributed to eligible children of Ross Township through special programs coordinated through the township office. Local businesses, churches, organizations, and generous local private citizens provide eligible children with the experience of opening presents from Santa Clause.
Monetary donations and food drives support The Ross Township Food Pantry throughout the year.
