LyondellBasell fills We Care’s pantry

MORRIS – LyondellBasell employees helped We Care purchase over 3,605 pounds of food from Northern Illinois Food Bank and provided volunteers to unload the truck and stock the shelves last month.

We Care receives a monthly delivery of food for its pantry from the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The NIFB is able to provide food to food pantries at prices that are unattainable in grocery stores.

“LyondellBasell employees are once again showing their commitment fighting hunger in the Morris community,” said Brent Connett, LyondellBasell public relations manager, in a news release. “Helping We Care of Grundy County is truly a worthwhile cause and our employees are proud to support them.”

“We are truly indebted to LyondellBasell’s employees. They fill our food pantry from four to six times each year,” said We Care’s Denise Gaska, in a news release.

In addition to the food that We Care purchases with the donations, the food pantry also receives food that is provided for free as part of the Emergency Food Program. The EFP provided beef stew, peanut butter, chicken leg quarters, whole chickens and whole turkeys.

Upcoming Fill the Pantry sponsors include the family and friends of Robyn White, LyondellBasell and Morris Building and Loan, Robert Russo, and Boggs & Fillenworth.

We Care is a local nonprofit agency that provides emergency assistance to Grundy County residents in the form of food, rent, utility and prescription assistance. We Care is a United Way partner agency and is funded primarily by private donations. We Care is located at 520 W. Illinois Ave., Morris. For information, visit www.wecareofgrundy.com.
