The Algonquin Garden Club has made a $500 financial donation to the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Food Pantry on Pyott Road in support of their efforts to provide nutritional foods to clients within the community.

This is an opportunity for these two organizations to come together to "beautify" the community through their "green" efforts.

Food pantry volunteers, some of whom are also garden club members, work with the nonprofit in the summer to grow and maintain the pantry's vegetable gardens that supply a variety of goods to the clients of the pantry.

In the fall, continuing its good works, garden club members donated dozens of toys to The Salvation Army Corps of McHenry County for the Christmas holidays.

Over the summer, the garden club awarded two $1,000 Diane Connelly Memorial Scholarships.

The club meets once a month at a member's home.
