COTG Donates Over 3,500 Items to Local Food Pantry

Bolingbrook, Illinois – November 26, 2012 – Thanksgiving has long been known to bring families together, giving thanks for friends, football, good food and much more. However, for some, this time can be a reminder of earlier struggles – and a reliance on local food pantries to continue holiday meal traditions. Recognizing this need, COTG annually hosts a Thanksgiving Food Drive to support the local community.

COTG hosted a Thanksgiving Food Drive throughout the month of November, with a goal of collecting Thanksgiving specific food – mashed potatoes, stuffing, turkey and more – to put together Thanksgiving baskets that would be donated to local families in need. Employees were encouraged to contribute these items that would be donated to the DuPage Township Food Pantry, to prepare for the rush in donation requests that occur around the holidays.

As a result of the three week fundraiser, COTG donated over 3,500 items to the DuPage Township Food Pantry. COTG’s donation was recognized publicly by DuPage Township Supervisor, Bill Mayer, during a special broadcast of WGN Radio live from the food pantry on November 20th.

"A special thanks goes to COTG and other companies in our community, who really stepped up to help out and make our serving of over 1,300 families possible this year," said Mayer.

The DuPage Township Food Pantry provided almost 1,400 families with Thanksgiving meals this year. All donations go to local area families and individuals in need within the DuPage Township district.
