MOST URGENT NEED!
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 finnacial support as we ramp up our food orders to the Food Bank and make sure our inventory is suffice to serve families in this modified way. And so, monetary donations are especiall 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.
