Wheaton Lions Club Hosts a Community Hunger Food Drive

September 20 – October 4, 2022
Wheaton Community

 


The Wheaton Lions Club invites all our neighbors in Wheaton, Carol Stream, Winfield and Warrenville to join us in the fight against local hunger.  The Lions Club is partnering with local Wheaton, Carol Stream, Winfield and Warrenville businesses to collect non-perishable food beginning Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

People’s Resource Center’s (PRC) will be the beneficiary of all donations.  This project is part of the Wheaton Lions “Focus on Hunger” which also supports one of the Lions primary “Pillars of Service” for the community.

Since 1975, People's Resource Center (PRC) has been bringing neighbors together to respond to hunger and poverty in DuPage County. 

The current list of items in greatest demand includes:

  • Canned meat (tuna and chicken)

  • Canned food (vegetables, soup, pork and beans, legumes/beans, spaghetti sauce, fruit)

  • Rice and Pasta

  • Personal care items (shampoo, body wash toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, bar soap, liquid hand soap)

  • Diapers*

NOTE: Perishable food and products past their expiration date will not be accepted.

*PRC has more buying power in bulk lots.  Cash gifts will be used by PRC to purchase diapers and household cleaning supplies as their inventory requires.

Please consider donating to the Wheaton LIONS Charities to provide PRC with diapers and cleaning supplies.
