CURRENT CAMPAIGNS & NEEDS:
September was Hunger Action Month! Our APPLE CAMPAIGN very successful as many bighearted donors stepped up to purchase an "apple" for our orchard! Here is a picture from our orchard inside the pantry. Video coming soon of our virtual orchard blossoming!
WHAT DOES THE PANTRY NEED RIGHT NOW?
We are always appreciative of any non-perishable item donations but as supply and demand fluctuates, so does our need of specific items. If the level of need warrants, we publish a special list of "Most Needed Right Now" items.
Leveraging our partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank, we can obtain $8 worth of groceries for every $1 donated!
Also, 96.5% of all cash donations go directly to purchasing food! Our other operational costs are less than 3.5%!
Monetary donations can also be mailed to P.O. Box 879; Carpentersville, IL 60110.
Donations can also be made from our Facebook Page (@d300.FoodPantry).
We always welcome donations of non-perishable food items as well as personal hygiene, paper & cleaning products. We have an ongoing list of "Most Needed Items" and sometimes we also have a monthly list of "What We Need Right Now." See links to these documents below.
