Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter, owner of 1st Place Chiropractic in St. Charles, hosts an annual food drive for the Northern Illinois Food Bank each December, donating directly to the Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva. The Food Bank distributes the food to local pantries that help families and individuals in need. 1 in 5 are hungry in Northern Illinois.
Dr. Kleinfelter and 1st Place Chiropractic have been hosting this food drive each winter since 2002. This past December, nearly 600 pounds of food and monetary donations to the Northern Illinois Food Bank were brought in by patients, staff, and family and friends. Gift certificates were donated by local businesses as door prize incentives for people to donate non-perishable food items.
