For the 10th straight year, the North Avenue Business Association has helped needy families in the community with its Annual NABA Fall Food Drive. NABA’s food drive entitled, “A Month of Giving” runs every year from Mid-November through Mid-December . The North Avenue Business Association along with its partners and North Avenue residents collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations that are donated to The Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry at 848 Lake Street in Oak Park and St. Cyprian’s Food Pantry at 6535 W. Irving Park Road in Chicago. Both food pantries serve clients who live along and near North Avenue in Chicago and Oak Park.
“Unfortunately the need is still there and the North Avenue Business Association and its members are glad to help those Chicago and Oak Park residents in need with our Annual NABA Food Drive.” says Lee Owens NABA President. “This year’s donations of food and money were badly needed by our two pantries, St Cyprians Ecumenical Food Pantry in Chicago and the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry who still see an increase in needy clients”
