St. Peter’s Church is hosting a Food Drive this Saturday, October 24th. Please help them help others!
It does not seem possible, but the Holiday Season and the winter months are quickly approaching. This is a time of year when food pantries struggle to provide for the needs of the community. This year, because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting increase in the number of our neighbors suffering from layoffs and job loss, our local food pantry is facing a crisis. With so much need, they are finding their resources severely depleted.
In response to this growing need, the Historic Downtown Frankfort businesses will be having a food drive “How We Can” October1 thru November 11. On Saturday, October 24, from 9:00am-12:00pm, in cooperation with our local businesses St. Peter’s United Church of Christ (12 West Sauk Trail, Frankfort, IL 60423, 815-469-2220) will be having a food drop off drive where people can drive thru to drop off their donations. All food and money collected will go directly to the Frankfort Township Food Pantry to help serve the needs of our neighbors.
Please place your donations in the trunk/hatchback of your vehicle. To provide safety for all, masked and gloved volunteers will take your donations so that you need not leave your vehicle. We will also have volunteers, masked and gloved, with buckets to collect your monetary contributions if you so choose.
Please tell your friends and neighbors and encourage them to be a part of this community-wide effort to serve those in our community that find themselves in need of our help.
