It was reported in the Daily Herald and the Grayslake Review that the Avon Township Food Pantry was the recipient of about 3 tons of food items from the recent U.S. Postal Service’s ‘Stamp Out Hunger” program. A big THANKS goes out to all the residents who put non-perishable food items by their mailboxes last Saturday to make this possible. With this type of community involvement it will allow the food pantry to continue helping over 2,000 local residents who are in need due mostly because of unemployment.
The Avon Township Food Pantry serves the Greater Round Lake Area as well as Grayslake, Hainseville and Third Lake. They are located at 433 E. Washington St. in Round Lake Park (inside the Township/Assessors building). Hours are 10-3 M-T-W, 2-6 Thurs, 10-2 Fridays, and the second Sat. of each month from 10-12. and can be reached at 546-1446.
