School Supply Drive--Kendall County Food Pantry

Kendall County Food Pantry is launching its 2013-2014 School Supply Drive to prepare for supply distribution to the nearly 500 school children eligible for assistance this year. The Pantry needs your help in making the school drive a success.  Please help those who need your help by shopping for and purchasing school supplies for our county school children. In these continuing hard times, our children need your help as much as ever.  Supplies can be dropped off in the lobby anytime at our new location across the street from the old building:  Kendall County Food Pantry, 208 Beaver Street , Yorkville , IL , or at any of the other convenient drop-off spots located around the county.  Cash donations specified "School Supplies" are also greatly appreciated.  Checks should be made to Kendall County Food Pantry, Memo:  "School Supplies."   Distribution this year is on Monday, July 29 from 10:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M--earlier than last year,   We will be doing final sorting the week of July 22-26.
