The Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary Club is asking the community to assist in restocking DeKalb and Sycamore food pantries. Non-perishable food items, including canned and boxed goods, as well baby items, such as diapers and baby food, are needed. Cash donations can be made by writing a check to Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary.

“Members of our club have expressed a desire to help restock the area food pantries during these difficult economic times." said John Jencks, Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary food drive coordinator. "We are creating drop-off sites at numerous DeKalb and Sycamore businesses to make it easy for individuals to make a donation.”

Kishwaukee Sunrise Rotary club members have volunteered their businesses to serve as collection sites and have pledged to supplement the donations to assure that the food drive is a success. The Rotary food drive will take place through May 26. Questions about this event can be directed to John Jencks at 303-884-4054.
