Wonder Lake food pantry event set for Saturday

WONDER LAKE – The Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry is joining with the U.S. Postal Service for “National Stamp Out Hunger Day.”

On Saturday, residents are asked to leave food donations at either their mailboxes or at their local post office to be donated to their local food pantry.

Local mail carriers will pick up donations when they deliver the mail.

Volunteers of the Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry will be located throughout Wonder Lake to accept monetary and food donations from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Wonder Foods, Village Market, Horizontals, Dusty’s Pizza, Lizard Lounge and Paulie’s Pizza have joined with the Wonder Lake Neighbors Food Pantry in an effort to stamp out hunger in the community.

Collection boxes are set up at these local businesses, and they will be donating 10 percent of their proceeds on this day.

The Wonder Lake Veterinary Clinic also will be accepting pet food donations.

For information, call the pantry at 815-355-5459.
