Collection Drives

People Need People.

We are hosting monthly blood drives and drive-thru drop-off food drives at Ackerman SFC! Appointments are recommended for the blood drives, but walk-ins are welcome. To donate nonperishable food items and toiletries to help fill the shelves at Glen Ellyn Food Pantry, simply pull up to the main entrance, and we will take care of the rest.
