“On behalf of our neighbors in need, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for your generous donation of $413 to the West Suburban Community Pantry. Benefactors,, such as yourself, are truly helping us make a real difference in our ongoing mission to ensure that no one goes to bed hungry in our community and throughout DuPage County. I spoke to an elderly client recently that was stuck in a continuous bind month-to-month of being forced to choose how to best utilize her limited fixed income. She was overjoyed when she learned about the Pantry because it helped “bridge the financial gap” in her life. Your contribution helps build that bridge. Without our donors, those types of chasms might never be overcome; thank you again for your thoughtful support.” – Eric Gardner, Development Director, West Suburban Community Pantry
