Community swaps guitars, donations for Elmhurst food pantry
ELMHURST — This month's fundraiser at Fitz's Spare Keys was a testament to the generosity of Elmhurst residents, said Jacki Lawrence, coordinator for the Elmhurst/Yorkfield Food Pantry.
Fitz's Spare Keys hosted a musical instrument swap meet on April 6, where residents brought in their old guitars, microphones and other instruments in exchange for helping the local food pantry. For admittance, guests brought in a donation of a non-perishable food, sealed personal hygiene items or cash.
Lawrence said the pantry received more than 400 pounds in food and other items, in addition to about $250 cash.
