The Des Plaines Community Foundation donated $10,000 to local area food pantries. The donation was split between three food pantries.
“During these hard times all food pantries are pressed for help with so many people out of work,” said Rosemary Argus, executive director of the Des Plaines Community Foundation. “People are struggling in this economy and food pantries are a very necessary and important factor to some resident’s lives. The Foundation Trustees voted unanimously to donate.”
