Elgin Township Food Drive

Sat Aug 13 – 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Inflation hits the poor the hardest and makes their life very difficult. This means that they rely on the Food Banks even more. The BEST WAY to donate is to make a check out to ECM (Elgin Cooperative Ministry) – OR – pick up a few extra items while you are at the store.

Two Locations

Settlers Park, 3046 Sutton St, Elgin, IL 60124 (West of Long Common)
210 Wing Park Blvd, Elgin, IL 60123 (Carl and Cherryl Strathmann’s home)

What Is Needed

  • Food items: cereal, canned foods, granola bars, peenut butter, pasta, rice, pasta sauce, veggies, fruit and meat.
  • Cleaning supplies: sponges, paper towels, laundry detergent, bleach, all purpose cleaners, dish soap.
  • Toiletries: soap, deodorant, razors, feminine hygiene products, shower gel, diapers, toilet paper.

The most effective donation is always money so the food pantries can buy what is needed in bulk. Make checks out to:

Can’t make it to the food drive? Contact Vern and drop off at his home. He’ll make sure the donations get to the food drive.

Join us for our 4th annual Jump for Vets in honor of Veteran’s Day!

Why Jump?

Because we’re saving lives through cutting-edge PTSD Treatment

Suicides among the veteran population are rising again and currently 17 veterans take their own life every single day. This is a staggering statistic and Rags of Honor1 is the only veteran non-profit actively funding a procedure called a Stellate Ganglion Block, which has proven to greatly reduce, or in most cases completely eliminate, severe Post-Traumatic Stress in over 83% of its recipients. The $1800 procedure is not covered by insurance or the VA, but BECAUSE OF JUMPERS LIKE YOU, we have successfully funded over 20 procedures!

After you register, create your personal fundraising page, share it with friends and family, and post it on social media! If you can’t jump with us, you can still create a fundraising page and support our vets with the donations you receive!

Family-Friendly: All ages and abilities welcome!

  • 8:00am: Doors open / Live DJ
  • 8:30-9am: Special Guest! Learn jump roping tricks and tips with Rachel Jablow, founder of Get Roped!
  • 9:00-10:15am: Jump!
  • We’ve got you covered: Jump ropes, water, coffee, and snacks will be provided, and parking is free (lot H)!
  • $40.00 donation per jumper (includes free T-shirt) – ALL proceeds fund the Stellate Ganglion Block procedure.
