On behalf of the Downers Grove Area FISH organization and those we assist, I express our sincere gratitude to the residents of Downers Grove. Your generous donations collected during the Letter Carrier's Food Drive held on May 18 totaled more than seven tons of food.
With the assistance of the Downers Grove North football team, we were able to coordinate delivery of 14,875 pounds of nonperishable food and paper products to the pantry. Your assistance goes a long way in helping our neighbors in need.
For 44 years FISH has continued to provide emergency assistance with a free food and clothing closet in the Downers Grove Township building located at 4340 Prince Street. Completely staffed by volunteers, many community contributions have allowed FISH to continue to serve an average of 500 individuals and families each month.
The FISH van is used to transport food donations. Our prayer is to receive an updated cargo van to comply with Feed America standards and assist our volunteers in their strenuous lifting efforts on behalf of the emergency needs of our community, which are growing.
Chrysler is holding a contest for a van! You can help us by voting DAILY through August at: www.dgfish.org. Spread the link to others and help win this one for our community. We are in the top 25 nationwide.
As an ecumenical nonprofit organization, FISH attempts to supplement the work of church and philanthropic organizations with no government funding.
