McHenry teen donates nearly 700 pounds of food to FISH

Katelyn Sena is proof that one person can make a big difference.

During the past two weeks the McHenry West junior has collected food and other donations for FISH of McHenry Food Pantry. On Thursday she dropped off what she collected.

Packed into an SUV and loaded onto FISH carts were 832 items, including 680 pounds of food, dozens of non food items, and $150 in monetary donations.

Sena found time between homework and softball practice to pass out fliers around town and go door-to-door asking for donations.

Sena said she hopes her act of kindness will encourage others in McHenry County to do the same.
