We support our surrounding community through planned and coordinated projects with
larger organizations, such as the Power Connection Food Pantry in Bolingbrook
(coordinating food drives;) Morningstar Mission in Joliet (serving hot meals at their soup
kitchen;) and Feed My Starving Children in Aurora (participating in FMSC food-packing
events.) We also have a Blessing Box free mini-pantry in our driveway, where people in
need can help themselves to canned & non-perishable food items and travel-size hygiene
items anytime, day or night. The box also has brochures with information on local
agencies that can provide further assistance.
