Glen Ellyn Food Pantry’s Kindness Club.
It’s kids helping kids right in our own community.
- Groups of children in Glen Ellyn and Lombard walked door-to-door (with adult supervision!) in neighborhood food drives.
- Two high schools competed to collect the most food for the Pantry.
- Kids opened lemonade stands and donated the proceeds.
- Others gave some of the money they received for birthdays or special occasions.
There are lots of ideas!
Each child who makes a difference will:
Here’s some quick ideas
- Create birthday cards for our Birthday Bag program
- Set up a lemonade stand and donate the proceeds
- Host a garage sale in your neighborhood and give part of the money you make
- Donate some of the gifts you receive from your birthday or special event
- Go door-to-door (with an adult along) and collect food from your neighbors; the Pantry’s most needed items are posted on our home page every week!
- Have a competition between grades or classes to collect the most food at your school
- Ask people to bring birthday supplies (cake mixes, frosting, candles) to your birthday party; the Pantry needs them for our Birthday Bag program where we give a gift bag to clients on their special day
- See if your scout troop can go on a scavenger hunt and collect the Pantry’s most needed items
