Posted by wlpo on November 20, 2016

While the Illinois Valley Food Pantry was dispensing holiday baskets Saturday, new supplies were being collected a few miles away.  LaSalle County Broadcasting stations  – “Classic Hits 103-9 WLPO”, “99-3 WAJK” and “96-5 The Wolf” joined with Peru Hy-Vee,  Illinois Valley Y and Stevenson Transfer to again “Fill the Mayflower”.

Donna Hess, Executive Director of the Illinois Valley Food Pantry stated 4208 pounds of canned goods and $180 in cash had been collected over a 6 hour period Saturday. Hess said volunteers will again start sorting and stocking on Monday as they prepare for the Christmas distribution on December 17.  The Pantry will always accept more food, but cash donations help tremendously, too.
