West Deerfield Township

March/April 2015


Food Pantry – The West Deerfield Township Food Pantry is serving more individuals and more families than ever before—and we need your help. Please consider donating non-perishable food items, personal care or household cleaning products. A box of pasta, a bottle of glass cleaner, a can of fruit, some shampoo…. Your donations will all go to fellow residents who are struggling to provide some basic items for their household. Contributions of gift cards to local grocery stores and checks payable to the West Deerfield Township Food pantry are also graciously accepted. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so your contribution is tax-deductible.

The pantry operates five days a week from 8:30am- 4:30pm. You are welcome to stop by to drop off your donations anytime. We are located at 601 Deerfield Road, in Deerfield (one block east of Waukegan Road). Your generosity will help someone that will greatly appreciate a neighbor’s help.

Transportation Service For Mobility Challenged Individuals – West Deerfield Township has a great transportation service designed to make life easier for many of our residents.

This program is an appointment- based service and requires a registration process which is quick and simple - see the box below for details. Once registered, our modified minivan can transport you to your medical, dental and physical therapy appointments. This program can aid anyone who is mobility challenged whether it be for orthopedic physical therapy, chemotherapy, epilepsy or other conditions making it difficult to drive.

This program provides independence to those who might otherwise find it difficult to get to their appointments. Over and over again, residents and their families have told us they feel safe and secure with our trained, friendly drivers.

Sign up today—we are here to serve you!
