Spring Valley Lions collect food for pantry

Karen Klopcic (second from left), secretary of Spring Valley Lions Club, stopped by the Hall Township Food Pantry with a donation of food and cash. She is pictured with Bonnie Bernabei (from left), Randy Hafley and Andrew Swanson. Absent from the photos is John Fulara, who also participated in the food drive. With this donation, the food pantry was able to purchase $1,500 from the River Bend Food Bank. Lions Club members stood outside the Spring Valley Supermarket, passing out a pantry wish list, in order to collect the 437 pounds of food. The food pantry serves residents of Arlington, Bureau, Cherry, Dalzell, DePue, Hollowayville, Ladd, Seatonville and Spring Valley. Each year, for the past several, Spring Valley Lions have set aside a Saturday to collect food for the pantry, knowing the winter months are especially hard on families in need.
