April 6 Tea Party food drive to replenish Rockford Area Food Pantry
From press release
RockfordTeaParty is holding a food drive from 1 to 4:30 p.m. during one of two Illinois Tea Party Express stops on Tuesday, April 6, at Davis Park in downtown Rockford in partnership with the Greater Rockford Pantry Coalition.
RockfordTeaParty recognizes the needs in our community and wants to do more than merely protest and speak out. They want to give back to the community. The food drive on April 6 will help feed the homeless and less fortunate in our community and around the stateline area during these difficult financial and economic times as Rockford’s unemployment rate sits over 20 percent.
“We’re excited about doing this food drive, families will be helped, and this is what the Tea Party is really all about,” said Coordinator David Hale. “People helping people instead of completely relying on government to do what ‘We the People’ should be doing for each other every day.”
Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to this national Tea Party Express event. Their generosity will go a long way in feeding families in need in our communities.
