July 4th 2018
St. Matthew United Church of Christ, the People’s Resource Center, and the Interfaith Food Pantry of Carol Stream want to thank the community for helping their neighbors in need at the Wheaton 4th of July parade with donations of cash and food. $1,174 was raised and we were able to fill a truck with food and personal care products for the food pantries.
We appreciate the generosity of The Home Depot in Carol Stream for providing a truck and shopping carts for our “drill team”. Of course we thank all the members of St. Matthew UCC who participated in this worthwhile cause. This great result would not have been possible without everyone’s support.
St. Matthew UCC is also honored to have received an award for “Best Neighborhood” from the City of Wheaton.
Thank you Wheaton, for caring for your neighbors.
