The Illinois Valley Food Pantry expresses its gratitude to all who participated in the 2023 “Feed the Need” fundraiser during November and December. For every dollar donated through PayPal or directly to the pantry, the Miller Group Charitable Trust Fund at The Chicago Community Foundation generously matched up to $5,000. Your contributions played a crucial role in helping us reach our goal. We would also like to extend our deepest appreciation to the individuals behind the scenes who made this event possible.
Special thanks to John Spencer and Tom Henson from Starved Rock Media for their exceptional efforts in advertising and raising public awareness. We are also grateful to Joyce McCullough, the advisor who recommended this grant. The Illinois Valley Food Pantry acknowledges and appreciates the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in making this event a resounding success.
