Do the gifts that K.O.C. collect go to children outside of Kendall County or are the gifts collected only for the children of Kendall? Due to the increase in families supported by the Kendall County Food Pantry, there is such a tremendous need for the children within our own county. It is simply sad that there is a shortage of gifts for the children within in our own communities.

Cheryl, Let me ask one of the organizers. The flier says the gifts go to Kendall County children, but I noticed one of the drop-off locations is in Sandwich, so perhaps they spread out to the surrounding areas, too.
