The Board of Directors of Grafton Food Pantry would like to thank all of the dedicated volunteers that assisted in the May 10, 2014 STAMP OUT HUNGER event that benefited the clients of Grafton Food Pantry. This was the first time that this effort was conducted in the Village of Huntley. The postal workers and volunteers worked side by side tirelessly sorting, packing and transporting the donations.
Special thanks and recognition for the extraordinary efforts of Postmaster Derek Strissel; Kathy Schneiter; Mike Montes; Tom Poznanski; Scott Dornhecker; Mary Hardy and the Huntley Park District. Without their commitment and hard work in coordinating this event, many local families would not have adequate food during the next several months.
To our friends and neighbors, we thank you for your generosity in donating over 6000 pounds of food! Every month, an average of 600 individuals receive food assistance from our pantry. For every dollar donated, we have the buying power of $4.00. To all of the individuals who took the time to participate, you have truly made a difference in helping to end hunger our community. For further information, to volunteer or to donate, please call 847 495-0992 or visit graftonfoodpantry.org.
HELPING OUR COMMUNITY
The Grafton Food Pantry is as an organization that truly brings the community together. Strong ongoing initiatives have been made to reach out to local businesses, service groups, elementary and high school students, Scouts, churches, temples, and the residents of Sun City in order to better serve the community. We also provide referrals to other agencies and programs so that our clients may have every opportunity for any support they may need. We believe in utilizing existing services, not in duplicating the efforts of other agencies. We serve the Village of Huntley, Village of Lakewood, and portions of Lake in the Hills, Crystal Lake, and Algonquin. Our generous volunteers and benefactors are of every age, religious faith and ethnicity. They work side by side helping their neighbors in need.
