Businessman makes donation
CEDAR LAKE — Cedar Lake businessman Tom Krygsheld, owner of Illiana Heating and Air Condidtioning, donated $5,000 to the Project Love Food Pantry as they launched a campaign to build a new facility.
Krygsheld said he had heard about the pantry that was operating out of a small cottage behind the Cedar Lake United Methodist Church and how many people they served each week.
“There were things I wanted to look into, “he said. “How many people took advantage of the pantry, how were the products distributed and was there a need for a new building.”
“This new building will be a better facility, fit all their needs, make it easier to store food safely,” he said.
CLUMC Pastor Ken Puent said the pantry currently serves the entire southern portion of Lake County including Crown Point, Winfield, Leroy, Cedar Lake, Lowell, Shelby Schneider and their townships. He said the pantry provides food, paper goods, personal care items and cleaning supplies. Current estimates, according to Puent, suggest that there are 5,000 people in this area working below the poverty level, so the need for a food pantry exists.
