Food For Friends…
Byram Healthcare held their 7th annual Food For Friends Blue Bag event this past week!!
We were able to help out 50 families in our community by providing the fixings for a nice Thanksgiving meal.
Throughout the week of 11/12-11/16 we collected more than enough non perishable food items to create our Blue Bags with the 50 turkeys provided by Food For Friends and provide the fixings for a nice meal for a family in need as well as donate some additional food to West Suburban Food Pantry in Woodridge.
We delivered 25 of the bags to families in Woodridge with the help of the West Suburban Food Pantry and another 25 to families in and around Plainfield with the help of the Southwest Community Church of Plainfield.
