GRAYSLAKE – McHenry County and Lake County communities came together to help Comfort Keepers collect 1,925 pounds of food through its Feed Seniors Now food drive for local seniors in need during September and October.

“We asked the community to help make food donations to help local seniors and raise awareness of the growing epidemic of senior hunger and malnutrition, and they came through with open arms,” said Karen Larsen, sales and marketing Director for Comfort Keepers.
