Sandwich Storage Company Assists Food Pantry
Yorkville Patch received the following news release:
The trailer service was initially donated to the food pantry two years ago when the organization held a food drive event and needed extra storage. But as the economy continued to worsen and the need for the pantry’s services grew, they soon realized the trailer would be needed on a more permanent basis.
“This economy has really humbled me,” said Paul Auten, owner of The Trailer Guy Mobile Storage. “I’m just glad I am able to do my part to support this organization. They have helped so many Kendall County families during these tough times."
Auten has been volunteering at the food pantry for the past three years. He typically helps with organization and distribution in the pet food division. Auten has also helped with several fundraisers that have benefited the pantry including the Kendall Cares program and a Yorkville Chamber of Commerce casino night that raised nearly $14,000.
The Kendall County Food Pantry serves residents of Kendall County and is located at 1204A Deer Street in Yorkville. In 2010, the food pantry gave food and supplies to 6,000 people over the holiday season, 2,500 of which were children. They are a non-profit organization operated exclusively by volunteers and rely 100% on donations. Besides non-perishable food, the pantry also offers clothing and other household supplies. To make a donation or volunteer call 630-553-0473 or visit their website at www.kendallcountyfoodpantry.org.
