Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago recently announced that the Hinsdale, Downers Grove and La Grange offices collected 453 pounds of non-perishable food for the Downers Grove Area FISH Pantry in June during the company’s Community Kindness event.
Each of the offices served as a depository for agents, their clients and the public. During Community Kindness, held in conjunction with the company’s Kindness Foundation, each of the company’s 24 offices selects local organizations to support.
Downers Grove Area FISH Pantry is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has been serving local communities since 1969. Their services include a food pantry, clothes closet, financial aid, and transportation.
Downers Grove Area FISH Pantry is dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for people in our community. They strive to provide a safe, healthy and welcoming environment for clients and volunteers. Although DuPage County is the second wealthiest county in Illinois, more than one in 10 adults are expected to be food insecure (source: Impact DuPage). The FISH Pantry assists hundreds of families and individuals in Darien, Downers Grove, Lisle, Westmont and Woodridge each year.
