The McHenry Area Chamber is launching the First Annual Thanksgiving Harvest Food and Funds Drive on November 1st to support FISH – McHenry’s Food Pantry. Our goal is to collect 50,000 pounds of non-perishable food items and personal products.
Here are 3 ways that YOU can help:
1. Sponsor a Box. Become a drop off location by sponsoring a box at your office or store.
2. Donate Funds. Monetary donations are gratefully accepted. FISH partners with the Northern Illinois Food Bank to maker purchases at extremely low prices. A $10 donation buys $80 worth of food and personal and household products. Checks and be made out to the FISH of McHenry with HARVEST written in the memo line.
3. Volunteer. Start a new traditions; show your family what it means to give of their time to help those in need. Volunteers are needed on Thanksgiving morning to sort the items that are collected. Donations will be delivered to FISH for distribution at a later date. Sorting will begin at 8:00 am and run until 10:00 am at The Chapel, 1809 S. Route 31 in McHenry. Register here.
