LANSING | The Lansing Food Pantry is raising money to replace its 14-year-old van with a good, last model, used van that Ridgeway Chevrolet will sell to the nonprofit at cost.
The goal is to have the van replaced before winter. Food pantry volunteers use the van to pick up bulk donations, pick up at the Chicago Food Depository and deliver groceries to shut-ins.
Lansing's Woodmen Lodge 298 will match personal gifts to the food pantry van purchase fund up to $1,000. Supporters can write their checks to Lansing's Food Pantry Van Fund and write "Woodmen" on the memo line.
Direct any questions to the food pantry at (708) 474-8745 or Woodmen 298 President Paul Orich at (708) 476-6489. Additional information at www.woodmen.org.
