The Junior Service Club of Edwardsville / Glen Carbon, celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, presented a check in the amount of $4,500 to theGlen Ed Pantry today.
The pantry serves approximately 475 District 7 families and provides regular, emergency, and referral services to families who qualify. The JSC donation will be used to “purchase shoes for all students plus PE uniforms for students in 6th -9th grades. All students receive a book bag and supplies based on their school list,” states Judy Moody, Executive Director of the Glen Ed Pantry. Members of the Junior Service Club, accompanied by their children who are known as the Junior Juniors, will also help the local Boy Scouts with their “Scouting for Food” food drive benefiting the Glen Ed Pantry on November 16.
The Glen Ed Pantry is one of many recipients of the fundraising and volunteer efforts of the Junior Service Club. All money raised throughout the year stays within the community.
JSC’s upcoming fundraising events include the Diamonds are Forever Dinner Auction on February 8, 2014, and Kidmania on March 8, 2014.
