BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – State Rep. Daniel Didech, D-Buffalo Grove, is collaborating with the Vernon Township Food Pantry to collect canned and non-perishable food donations, including Kosher food for Passover, during the Passover and Easter holiday season.
“When our families gather to celebrate this spring, it’s important we remember the less fortunate in our communities who may lack the financial resources to do so,” Didech said. Whenever there is a holiday and everyone gets together over a meal, there is usually a lot of unprepared food leftover that could easily be redirected to help those in our community have similar celebrations with their loved ones.”
Didech is collecting food drive donations until Friday, April 26 at his full-time constituent service office during regular business hours. Didech’s office is located at 3050 N. Main St. in Buffalo Grove and is open weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The food pantry is able to take donations of perishable and non-perishable items, as well as hygiene and childcare products. Didech hopes that the residents will make a donation as part of the holiday season.
“The Passover and Easter holidays offer us a time to reflect on our lives and help those around us. A holiday food drive is a small, but significant way that our community can come together to support each other,” Didech said. “The Vernon Township Food Pantry supports hundreds of families, and any donations will help get people the assistance they need.”
