“I love [PRC] because you can find people that really help with what you need. And when I come, I see you helping a lot of people the same way you helped me.”

Our Volunteers

Last year, over 1900 volunteers donated their time at PRC. With their help, we can meet our community’s needs – neighbor to neighbor.

Join us by volunteering onsite or support PRC from anywhere by organizing a drive - food, books, clothes - to secure resources to meet our community's needs.

 

 

 

Donations

Last week our walk-in freezer went on the fritz - it needs to be replaced.  We knew it was getting old, but we had hoped it would last at least one more year.

20 cartons of meat for hungry neighbors had to be thrown out. We're now issuing meat "rain checks" to hundreds of People's Resource Center families while we work on getting the freezer replaced.

The freezer will cost $16,000.  This is a major expense we hadn't planned on right now.

Can you help?

Your donation will help us pay for this freezer and get back to providing meat and other healthy, nutritious frozen foods for our neighbors in need.

You can easily donate online by clicking here.  Or send your check to People's Resource Center, 201 S. Naperville Road, Wheaton, IL 60187.  Please note "Freezer" in the memo line.  Your gift of any size will help us toward our goal. And if we raise more than is needed to pay for the freezer, the additional funds will support the food pantry.

On behalf of our Board, staff and over 30,000 neighbors in need, we offer many thanks for your generosity.
