New, warm winter hooded jackets in sizes large to XXL were delivered to the Grafton Food Pantry for their annual Christmas gift program by members of Rotary Club of Huntley.

Everyone likes to help cute little children and donate gifts and clothing to them, but what about their parents?

 

Pantry managers soon realized the mothers stopping in needed jackets, and the pantry did not have enough adult sizes to cover the need.

The pantry asked Rotary to help them provide jackets in larger sizes this year so Nov. 17, members of the Rotary Club of Huntley delivered racks of jackets to the pantry for Christmas gifts to adults, along with knit hats for each.
