Kendall County Community Food Pantry, Inc, is pleased to announce a grant award from the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley totaling $20,000. The funds received under this grant have enabled the Pantry to make much-needed repairs to the failing parking lot.
“On behalf of the KCC Food Pantry and its Board of Directors, I would like to thank the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley for their trust and generosity. Each Thursday, hundreds of vehicles and shopping carts move around and across our lot. Before the paving repairs, this was a difficult and sometimes dangerous process.”, said Greg Witek, Board Chairman.
The KCC Food Pantry serves those households in the community that lack the finances to fully care for themselves right now. People of all ages, in each of our neighborhoods, churches, and schools who, quite regularly, have to decide between utilities, medications, or food rely on the pantry for nourishing food and living supplies each week.
The Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley is a non-profit, tax-exempt, philanthropic organization that administers individual charitable funds from which grants and scholarships are distributed to benefit the citizens of the Greater Aurora Area, the Tri-Cities and Kendall County, Illinois.
Founded in 1948, the Foundation provides a simple and powerful approach to charitable giving. Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations have the opportunity to custom design their own named funds that reflect their charitable goals and interests. Since its inception, the Community Foundation has grown to more than $80 million in assets and has awarded more than $63 million in grants and scholarships.
