Boys and Girls Club Cargo Van

Add some info about this item

One of our adopted partners, The Boys & Girls Club of Elgin, serves nearly 500 low income children everyday providing a safe place for them to go after school.  Up until recently, many of these children did not have access to a hot, nutritional meal in the evening.

 

With your generous support and Jan and Gary McGrath’s assistance, we have helped to fund a cargo van to deliver meals to these children.   The van delivers nearly 400 meals a day to 7 locations serving children after school.  That’s 72,000 meals a year. 

Cathy Malkani, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Elgin said,  “Some of these children eat school lunch at 10:30 am and would not eat another meal until the next day at school.   Now, we are able to change lives by ensuring meals are given to children in the community that need it most!  Thank you Fideliter’s and all your supporters!   This would not have happened without you!!!”

Milk for Food For Greater Elgin Children

Add some info about this item

Another of our adopted partners, Food For Greater Elgin, provides food to families and serves 32,400 children per year.  They have participated in the Milk2MyPlate program, an innovative partnership with Northern Illinois Food Bank, to make milk available to families with children.  Sadly, milk is one of the least often items donated to food pantries and one of the most expensive for pantries to purchase.  

With your generous support, we are funding the Milk2MyPlate program for them for 2017, which will provide 9,600 gallons of milk for families with children.  Food for Greater Elgin is the largest pantry in the Elgin area that provides milk to families. 

Michelle Frampton, Executive Director said,  “Your annual gift provides 250 full carts of nutritious food for a week for families in need.  This gift will help us ensure that there are gallons of milk in those carts as well.  Thank you for all you do for our community!”
