Thanks to all who participated
Submitted by Servpro of Arlington Heights
Servpro of Arlington Heights just completed its third annual Thanksgiving Food Drive for the needy families in Arlington Heights.
The owners of Servpro of Arlington Heights, Joe and Janet Coriaci, and their staff, would like to thank everyone who donated items to the food drive in order to help make Thanksgiving Day special for those who may have not been able to otherwise enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
The amount of food collected this year increased significantly from last year -- adding more days to the pickup and delivery because everyone collected such a good amount of food.
Servpro used a large box truck, which was filled at least three times with food. As a comparison, Servpro can pack contents from a person's entire home in a large box truck.
Each canned good and nonperishable item was very much appreciated and the generosity has been overwhelming.
Servpro of Arlington Heights would especially like to thank the following individuals and businesses for their cooperation and support: Carol Jancek at the village of Arlington Heights, for helping to coordinate the food drive, getting the word out and for collecting at the village; Mike Love and his staff at Chase Bank, downtown Arlington Heights and other participating branches; Chris and his staff at Egg Harbor Café; Vicky Leahy and The Shepherd's Flock Preschool; Westgate, Dryden, Ivy Hill and Windsor Elementary Schools, which all collected a huge amounts of food and monetary donations to purchase food certificates; Jenna and Hancock Square Apartments; Maria Cordon and Parkview Bank; Donna Radlicz, Rose Doherty and the "Church Ladies of Arlington Heights" and their teen helpers; Dan Cuthbert's insurance office; and all of the businesses in Arlington Heights that posted a flier and spread the word.
"This has truly turned out much bigger and better than we ever could have imagined. We can only imagine what next year will bring -- we are looking forward to keeping this going and we are happy to hear that everyone is looking forward to working with us again next year. May each and every one of you and yours be blessed with much peace and happiness this holiday season," said the Coriacis.
