Food Pantry thanks community for making Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive a success
The Lonbard-Villa Park Food Pantry and all those in need who depend on the Food Pantry for food would like to thank the National Association of Letter Carriers at the Lombard and Villa Park post offices, and our local residents and businesses for their generous support of the 2018 annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive. The Lombard-Villa Park mail carriers collected 12,000 pounds of food that will be distributed to the families in our community who are in need of food. We thank all of the letter carriers who volunteered their time and effort to collect the food. Only after the mail is delivered do the letter carriers, on their own time, collect the food left by our residents. Each year the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is successful due to the organization and commitment of the letter carriers and the generous support of the residents of Lombard and Villa Park. Concern for the children and their families in our community who are having a difficult time making it through each day is important, and that our residents are doing something to help, makes this a special community. The volunteers at the Lombard-Villa Park Food Pantry are grateful for the donated food. Having food on the dinner table can make a difference in the life of a hungry child. There is hope when someone cares. Our Food Pantry is located on the lower level of the First United Methodist Church of Lombard on the northeast corner of Main and Maple streets. We provide food for approximately 30 needy families each Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to noon.
