ELBURN—Macaroni and cheese, canned and dry soups and personal toiletries such as deodorant and soap are needed for the Elburn Fire Department’s annual collection to help the Elburn Food Pantry.

“It sure seems like we all know people now that are struggling, so it’s an easy thing we can all do,” firefighter Matt Hanson said.

Donated items can be dropped off at either Station No. 1 at 210 E. North St. or at Station No. 2 at 39W950 Hughes Road. Hanson said donations have been coming in at a pretty good pace.

“We generally have a good response from the community,” he said.

In addition to the items listed above, the pantry also needs stuffing mix, canned vegetables and canned pasta meals. To find out other items that may be needed, call the Elburn Food Pantry, located at 525 N. Main St., at (630) 365-6655.

Hanson wanted to remind seniors, or anyone who is unable to get out to drop off a donation, to call the Elburn Fire Department at (630) 365-6855.

“We’ll make the time to get over and pick up their donation,” Hanson said.
