The Des Plaines Community Foundation Donates $10,000 to the Des Plaines Self Help Closet & Pantry

The Des Plaines Self Help Closet & Pantry (SHC&P), 600 E. Algonquin Road, was the recent recipient of a $10,000 donation from the Des Plaines Community Foundation, a Des Plaines based not-for-profit agency that provides support for youth, senior citizens and people with special needs and helps promote a healthy and safe community environment.

The check presentation took place in Mayor Martin J. Moylan’s City Hall Office last week and included officials from the City, the SHC&P and the Des Plaines Community Foundation. The Des Plaines Community Foundation, in an effort to provide food and clothing to those in need throughout Des Plaines, has also presented $5,000 checks to the Maine Township and Elk Grove Township pantries
