Did you know, “five percent of children in Lombard live at or below the poverty level?” (city-data.com). The Lombard Park District is hosting its annual Trick-or-Treat Food Drive on Saturday, October 19 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Help us help others in our community by participating in this great opportunity to give back!
The Lombard Park District staff and volunteers are assigned a new area each year to collect canned and boxed foods to be donated to The Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry. “This year staff and volunteers are assigned neighborhoods near Manor Hill Elementary and the Log Cabin at Four Seasons,” said Program Manager, Katie Manheim. “We will be dropping bags at each door the week before and picking up the filled bags at their doorsteps on Saturday, October 19.”
For those not in those neighborhoods, bags will be available for pick up at Madison Meadow Athletic Center (500 E. Wilson) and Sunset Knoll Recreation Center (820 S. Finley) and can then be filled and dropped off at either location or at the Log Cabin at Four Seasons on the morning of the Food Drive.
Items in need include boxed pasta, rice, tomato sauce, canned fruit, juice, or canned prepared food. Take a visit to your local grocery store or see what’s in your pantry and help make a difference this fall!
