Posted by wlpo on December 19, 2015

It was Christmas Saturday for 419 Illinois Valley families receiving their annual Christmas basket. Executive Director Donna Hess oversees the Illinois Valley Food Pantry. She told “Classic Hits 103-9 WLPO” 56 more will be served Monday.

Pantry volunteers assembled dinners of ham, instant potatoes, stuffing mix, vegetables, corn muffin mix and jello. Clients needing to fill their December order, can do so 9 – Noon Monday and Wednesday. The Pantry closes December 24 and re-opens January 4.

Help Saturday came from Zion United and Peru Scout Troop #123. Meat was paid for by Oglesby Elks and 1 family who gave a significant amount in the memory of a loved one.
