Illinois Valley Food Pantry received $7,000 and 2,500 pounds of food from a donation provided through Scott Weber’s Christmas light display at his home on the east side of La Salle.
In December, Weber with the help of his family ran the light show consisting of 100,000 lights set to traditional and newer Christmas music in honor of U.S. military members.
Senica’s Interstate Towing assisted Weber by using a forklift to put up and later remove parts of the display. Weber started his light shows in 2007 and has given a donation to the pantry every year.
“It makes a big difference on our shelves,” said Donna Hess, executive director of the food pantry. “We always ask that people keep us in mind.”
Items needed Hess said these months are always very busy and donations can be slow. Illinois Valley Food Pantry is celebrating 30 years of service.
It assists a monthly average of 750 families in nine cities in La Salle County. Hess said the pantry always is in need of donations and now they really need empty milk jugs they can fill with homemade laundry detergent to give out to people. The Knights of Columbus will have their annual Hunger Blitz in early February, and donations will go to Illinois Valley Food Pantry.
