Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry Delivers a Holiday Harvest

AURORA, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 21, 2012) - A meal distribution initiative driven by employees of a 75-year-old Fox Valley company is helping the Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry feed hungry families this holiday season. For the second year, Kelmscott Communications employees have volunteered their time to give out hams and holiday food bags to nearly 1,500 local families served by the Pantry. Kelmscott Communications funded the purchase of hams as well.

Employees like Erika Apantenco, an administrative assistant, appreciate the company's willingness to invest the staff's time and dollars to serve the community. Staff members said they looked forward to coming back this year to distribute the meals alongside their co-workers. "It's a great way to spend time with the people I work with," said Celia Werschulz, Account Executive at Kelmscott Communications. "What makes it all worthwhile is seeing the smiles on the faces of the recipients."

"I simply cannot think of a better way to help our local families who are in need. The fact that the Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry puts together a generous offering for so many people purely amazes me," said employee Rich Schumacher, Account Executive. "Being a part of their act of kindness during the holidays is a very humbling and worthy experience. I just cannot pass it up!"

The Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry has served the area since 1981 assisting local households with limited financial resources to feed their families. The meals they provide help prevent hunger, homelessness and illness. The food distributed by the Pantry is obtained through community food drives and donations from individuals, businesses and organizations, and purchased with monetary donations and grants.
