LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES NEED YOUR HELP
Lake County food pantries see greater need for volunteers, monetary donations.
Although donations of food are always welcome, many food pantries in the Chicago area actually need contributions of another kind.
“Our No. 1 need is dollars,” Wendy Warden of the Avon Community Food Pantry told the Chicago Tribune recently. “Our No. 2 need is good consistent volunteers. And our third need is items like toothpaste, shampoo, laundry detergent and diapers.”
