IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN....BACK-TO-SCHOOL DRIVE!!
Back to School is right around the corner and D300 Food Pantry is on a mission to make it a FUN and HOPEFUL time for ALL D300 kids! We are accepting donations of school supplies, snack items, specific food items, and personal hygiene items. We have various days and timeframes available for you to drop off donations at our Outreach Center. We are alos seeking cash donations so we can shop for what we need most as this drive concludes and we prepare to distribute everything to the families we serve.
CHECK OUT THE FLYERS BELOW FOR ALL THE DETAILS!
GENERAL SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES:
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have altered our distribution method and operations schedule to drastically limit exposure for our volunteers and the families we serve. During this time, we are seeking financial support as we ramp up our food orders to the Food Bank and make sure our inventory is sufficent to serve families in this modified way. And so, monetary donations are especially appreciated right now.
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.
DONATION DROP-OFF TIMES:* PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 situation, our hours and drop-off locations have changed. Please contact us at 847-783-7030 or firstname.lastname@example.org for updated information or to schedule a delivery.
The D300 Food Pantry does several special projects every year for the families we service. Individuals, families, businesses, and groups can all get involved in these fun and engaging projects which bring TONS OF JOY to struggling families!
