Papierski: Giving back in Glen Ellyn this holiday season
This is the busiest time of year for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. The Holiday season is approaching, children are back at school and families are experiencing increasing demands on their budgets more than any other time of year.
Slow economic growth along with rising fuel and food prices have left many local families struggling with hunger for the first time. As a result, increasing numbers of people are requesting food assistance from the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. And because of the increasing request, we are turning to the steadfast support of our community for help in meeting the need to feed our hungry neighbors.
The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry is currently serving 100 additional families per month than this time last year. In addition, our Thanksgiving program supports another 550 families. Unfortunately, monetary and food donations are down compared to this time last year. We really need your help!
