The Hometown Resource Center will again sponsor a Christmas giving program for the local community.
WE ARE CURRENTLY COLLECTING GIFT CARDS TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO OUR FOOD SHELF FAMILIES AND THOSE FAMILIES WHO QUALIFY FROM ST. CHARLES AND THE IMMEDIATE AREA. GIFT CARD PREFERRED LOCATIONS INCLUDE: KWIK TRIP (REGULAR OF FUEL ONLY CARDS) AND MILLER’S MARKET IN ST. CHARLES. Giftcard amounts must be indicated when giftcards are donated. Please bring giftcards to the Center during our normal business hours. PLEASE RETURN GIFTCARDS PRIOR TO DECEMBER 18, 2019
Families will also be able to choose a toy for each child in the family (please note: we already have a good supply of toys), an extra 5 points is allotted per family to the Food Shelf and each family will receive their choice of a turkey, pork loin roast or beef roast from the Food Shelf.
In addition, the Hometown Resource Center partners with multiple programs through the holiday months. St. Charles has a Back Pack program that supplies much needed food for students over holiday school breaks. We coordinate with the Good Fellows program, which provides winter clothing to children in need. Food for Families is a great program that provides food on a monthly basis, above and beyond what the food shelf is able to provide. All of these programs welcome additional contributions during the holidays to help increase their efforts!
On behalf of all of us at the Hometown Resource Center, THANK YOU for your generosity in participating in our Christmas program and for helping to make the holidays a little brighter for families in need in our community!
