RSVP collects donations for River Grove Food Pantry

River Grove, Ill. – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

The RSVP Volunteer program for active senior citizens answers that question with a food drive. From Jan. 2-31, RSVP will collect non-perishable food items and amenities, including shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, detergent and toilet paper for the River Grove Food Pantry.

Those who would like to donate can drop off their donations anytime from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays at the RSVP office located on Triton College’s River Grove campus in Room R-221 of the Robert M. Collins Center.

For more information, call (708) 456-0300, ext. 3603. Triton College is located at 2000 Fifth Ave., River Grove, Ill.
