Why not combine a food drive for your church's food pantry with an event that you would love to attend yourself? That was the thought behind Kevin MacDonald's Eagle Scout Car Show/Food Drive.

"The show was much bigger than I expected," said MacDonald, a junior at Buffalo Grove High School, when asked about his show that took place on Sept. 8. "I was hoping to get up to 20 cars, so when over 40 showed up, I was thrilled."

Car exhibitors and spectators donated food as an entrance fee. A silent auction and people's choice voting were activities for the attendees. Neighbors, who couldn't make it to the show, also donated items by leaving them on their doorstep. All in all, over 800 food items and $300 were donated to the St. Edna Catholic Church Food Pantry, which serves more than 120 families in the Arlington Heights area.

Numerous volunteers from Kevin's Boy Scout Troop 401 in Buffalo Grove and many local businesses and organizations helped in the food drive. Bob Rohrman, True Value Hardware, Arlington Heights Ford, PGA Superstore, Dr. Beasleys, Fiskar, Motorwerks, Target, Dunkin' Donuts, Spunky Dunkers, Tortoricies, Dengeos, The Continental Restaurant, Einstein Bagels, 30's Pizza, DriveChicago.com, the Daily Herald, and St. Edna's all played an important part in the food drive's success.

If you'd like to help continue the support to St. Edna's Food Pantry, call (847) 398-3362. The food pantry is especially in need of donations for the upcoming holiday season.
