Food Drive

Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise collaborated with the West Suburban Community Pantry this morning for a drive-up food drive at the Naperville Country Club. Donors dropped off food and supplies to volunteers in the roundabout. All the donated items went directly to the West Suburban Community Pantry, an organization that’s been supplying food to those in need all over Illinois. And tonight John Greene Realtor is hosting a virtual happy hour from 5 to 6 p.m. tonight for the same cause, featuring live music by Tres Moustache. To participate, you can contribute to the GoFundMe set up by John Greene.
