A press release from Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore:
GENERAL ASSISTANCE FOOD PANTRY
Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore is now operating a General Assistance Food Pantry at the Township Office located at 10109 Vine Street, Huntley Illinois.
Non-perishable food item donations and personal care items, including toilet paper, are greatly appreciated by those who are applying for financial assistance from the General Assistance Office operated by Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore.
The recipients are often experiencing life-threatening problems including utility shut-off notices and eviction notices.
Please drop off your donations during office hours, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm, at the Township Building. Receipts are available for your tax deductible contributions to the Food Pantry. Please call 1-847-669-3328 if you have any questions.
The township sincerely appreciates Girl Scout Troop 183’s donation of over 100 non-perishable food items.
These 5th and 6th grade girls held a SWAPS (Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere) night and traded pins with 60 other girl scouts to work towards earning the Cadette Silver Award.
The food was donated by those attending the SWAPS event.
Their leader explained that they also made toys for an area animal shelter and dolls for the local police station to give to ease a crisis for young people. They also made door decorations for an assisted living community.
