Naperville Sunrise Rotary will host a Drive-By Drop-Off Spring Cleaning Supplies Drive for West Suburban Community Pantry on Friday mornings April 16 and 23 in front of Naperville Country Club, 25W 570 Chicago Avenue in Naperville. Volunteers will receive items from 8-9:30 AM.
“Because food stamps cannot be used to purchase any paper, cleaning or household items, we thought this was the perfect time to support the Pantry with Spring Cleaning supplies,” said Deb Newman, Rotary Community Service Committee Co-Chair. “Helping our neighbors make their houses feel fresh after the long winter is especially important this Spring, when COVID demand has made cleaning supplies expensive and hard to obtain.”
Suggested items to donate include Clorox/Lysol/Alcohol Wipes, Hand soap, All Purpose Cleaner, Disinfectant Spray, Window Cleaner, Laundry Detergent, Floor Cleaner, Dish Soap, Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Buckets, Sponges. Additional shelf-stable food items sought include Rice, Pancake Mix and Syrup, Boxed Potatoes, Boxed Dinners like Hamburger Helper or Macaroni & Cheese, and Peanut Butter and Jelly.
All donations benefit the West Suburban Community Pantry, which serves 53,000 individuals per year throughout DuPage and Will Counties. For more information or to make a donation, visit www.wspantry.org.
