Every year families traditionally gather around the table to enjoy a holiday meal together. These memories stay with us as our children grow and move on to begin new traditions with their own families. However for the one in seven people in Northern Illinois facing hunger, a special holiday meal is out of reach. So before you give thanks this year, please give the gift of a holiday meal so that another family can celebrate together.
Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry will be collecting funds for Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes until December 1st. For Thanksgiving it will be 12 pound turkeys with all the sides and for Christmas it will be hams with all the sides. Cost is $16 per box and we’re raising money for 400 boxes. Donations can be mailed to WL Neighbors Food Pantry at PO Box 293, Wonder Lake IL, 60097. Deadline for payment is October 31st. All contributions are tax-deductible.
