The President of the Niles Township Food Pantry Foundation, Charles Levy, gratefully accepts a check for $1,500 from the generous folks at AT&T for the Niles Township Food Pantry.  State Representative Lou Lang, always a friend to Niles Township,  initiated the donation for which we are eternally grateful.   Along with Rep. Lou Lang and another staunch supporter, State Rep. Laura Fine, are Trustees Mark A. Collins, Donald J. Gelfund and Anthony J. Lundin.  Mr. Tony Araque, food pantry manager, was delighted to set up the meeting with State Rep. Lang and Kimberly McCullough-Starks from AT&T.

We would like to take a moment to thank all of the other wonderfully generous folks and corporations who have helped support our food pantry which serves approximately 3,500 individuals per month.  This last holiday season the number of indivudials soared to over 10,000 who were served.  

 "Empty Bowls" (which benefits our food pantry) was held on December 6th at Oakton Community College.  The event was another resounding success.  All of our elected officials attended as well as many of the staff to buy wonderful gifts for the holiday season.  Look for the event next year sometime in December 2015.  The folks at Empty Bowls have furnished a link, please click on the following:
