Last year, the United Way of Lake County collected enough food for more than 200,000 meals during its annual Feed Lake County Food Drive.
That’s the good news.
Here’s the bad news: Nearly 21,000 Lake County residents still live in poverty and more than 6,000 of them are children. They may not know where their next meal is coming from.
But you can help.
From now until April 6, you can drop off nonperishable food at any of our branches and help Feed Lake County. You can also donate money if you prefer. Every $5 donation can buy up to 20 meals.
Your donation will be shared with Lake County residents through the more than 50 food pantries in the county.
(By the way, this drive is not our annual Can Your Fines food drive. We aren’t waiving fines for donations this time. Helping your neighbor is its own reward.)
Support your neighbor by donating food and help Feed Lake County.
