West Suburb Community Pantry Food Drive | The Weekly of Time


The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise is hosting a holiday food and toy drive on Friday, November 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in front of the Naperville Country Club, the Club’s usual meeting place. The contactless event is planned to support West Suburban Community Pantry, which serves more than 500 families each week in Naperville, Lisle, Woodridge, Bolingbrook, Westmont, Willowbrook and Romeoville.

“We’re all caught up in the hustle and bustle of enjoying the holidays. It’s easy to forget the invisible children, families and seniors who struggle every day and now face a tough vacation time, ”said Deb Newman, public relations president of Sunrise Rotary. “Sunrise Rotary is dedicated to helping children and families thrive in our community. This is a great opportunity to make our neighbor’s vacation a little brighter.

New unwrapped toys (ages 0-12)
