Three figure skaters from Leaf's Ice Centre -- Julia Coop, Erin Dougal, and Michaela Dudek -- are holding a food drive on the first weekend of May, during the Leaf's Ice Centre's annual ice show. They will be collecting nonperishable food items as well as money donations for the local food pantries. The donations will benefit the Hampshire-Burlington, FISH, and Grafton food pantries. Donations will be accepted at Leaf's Ice Centre, 801 Wesemann Drive in West Dundee.

The theme for the sixth annual ice show will be "Snow White and the Skating Dwarfs." There will be four shows throughout the weekend. Show times will be at 7 p.m. Friday, May 3; 1 and 6 p.m. Saturday, May 4; and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 5. Tickets are still available.

By helping provide food items to local food pantries, you can help improve the lives of your neighbors in need. For details, call (847) 844-8700 or visit
