Upcoming Blood & Food Drives

People Need People.

We’re hosting monthly blood drives and drive-thru drop-off food drives at Ackerman SFC! Appointments are recommended for the blood drives but walkups are welcome. To donate nonperishable food items and toiletries to help fill the shelves at Glen Ellyn Food Pantry, just pull up to the main entrance and we’ll do the rest. Donations for the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry will also be collected at the Turkey Burn, Turkey Trot 5-Mile Predicto Race, and New Year’s Day Burn.
