Through the generosity of our community and volunteers, we have been able to keep our
pantry program open, even adding additional days, as the community needs rise. Currently our Food Pantry is open every Thursday at 10:00am.
By developing a new partnership with Northwoods Mall, we were able to host a successful canned food drive, which helped us supply our pantry for the additional days needed.
Heart of Illinois United Way also donated funds from the Covid-19 Emergency Response Funds for essential services to increase the value of our food pantry baskets by 400% and the total number of boxes by 700%. We are grateful for that funding and the impact it has made, which allowed us to supply our food pantry through the end of April.
Fortunately, due to Kim Blickenstaff and Greg Birkland’s generous donation, we will be able to continue to meet the needs of the community through the end of May.
Thank you Northwoods, Heart of Illinois United Way, Kim Blickenstaff and Greg Birkland for your commitment to our community!
