Ellman FoodDrive TWNAPERVILLE – State Senator Laura Ellman is partnering with State Representative Janet Yang Rohr and Loaves & Fishes to host a food drive in support of community members in need.

“I couldn’t be prouder to represent such a generous community,” said Ellman (D-Naperville). “When we ask our neighbors to give, I’m always overwhelmed by their outpouring of generosity.”

The drive will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, from 9 a.m. to noon at Ellman and Yang Rohr’s district office in Naperville, 475 River Bend Rd., Suite 500. Residents dropping off food should follow the sidewalk to the right of the building to the back to locate Suite 500.

Loaves & Fishes President and CEO Mike Havala will kick off the drive by speaking about local food insecurity and the important impact of each and every donation, followed by comments from Ellman and Yang Rohr. Residents are invited to come hear the remarks at 9 a.m. sharp and welcome to stay and chat. For those in a hurry, donations can be dropped off any time before noon.

All donated items will benefit Loaves & Fishes, a local charitable organization that has served communities across DuPage, Will, Kane and Kendall counties since 1984.

“I’m excited to offer community members yet another opportunity to support our neighbors in need,” Ellman said. “Access to food is the most basic need we all have—I know this drive will have a great impact across our community.”

Ellman and Yang Rohr’s offices can be contacted at 630-601-9961 and 630-296-4157, respectively, with any questions ahead of the event.
