Updated 10/5/2022 8:39 AM

With skyrocketing grocery prices, significant supply chain issues, and lingering economic effects from the COVID pandemic, food insecurity in the suburbs continues to impact more families. In Schaumburg Township, the Food Pantry is reporting an increase in families in need of nearly 20%. Facing those concerns, the annual Lavelle Law Charities Food Drive is set to kick-off a 3 + week run this week.

With more than a decade of experience, the team at Lavelle Law Charities, the philanthropic arm of Schaumburg-based Lavelle Law, is well-prepared to rally the community for the holidays.

 

"We have eighteen collection sites this year, five corporate sponsors, and a team of volunteers ready to make our food drive a success," said Lavelle Law Managing Partner Ted McGinn. "We will have collection boxes throughout the area and our team is ready to continually pick up donations and deliver them to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry in support of the great work they do."

The pantry is reporting that more than 800 families are using their services each month. The goal of the food drive is to collect non-perishable food items, along with essential family items like diapers and formula, in support of local families heading into the holidays.

Residents may drop items off at the following locations through October 27. All items will be delivered to the Food Pantry on the 28th.
