Sandack, Passages Hospice to hold food and clothing drive
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
LISLE, IL – State Senator Ron Sandack (R-Downers Grove) has partnered with Passages Hospice in Lisle to collect non-perishable food and winter clothing for local residents in need. The items will be donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Goodwill of Naperville.
“With the upcoming cold winter months, it’s important that as a community, we help where we can for those who are in need,” Sen. Sandack said. “I’m pleased to be able to partner with Passages Hospice in order to promote this food and clothing drive for those throughout our communities.”
Passage Hospice Administrator Michael Gillman echoed Sen. Sandack’s sentiments saying, “We are dedicated to improving quality of life in our community. This is just one more way for us to help.”
Sen. Sandack said the most-needed food items are boxed casseroles, instant potato and rice dishes, hearty soups, and canned vegetables and fruits. Gently used winter clothing, coats, hats and gloves are also needed.
“I encourage people to consider picking up a few extra cans or boxes of food for the drive the next time they go grocery shopping for their family, or to give away a coat that they don’t wear as much anymore,” Sen. Sandack said. “It’s as easy as that and it will go to someone who truly needs it.”
The drive will run from November 1st to November 30th. Items can be dropped off at the Passages Hospice office located at 515 Warrenville Road in Lisle.
