EHC’s 9th Annual Holiday Food Drive
In partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, the EHC kicks off the 9th annual holiday food drive. Please consider donating to this important cause! All food collected will go directly to an Evanston food pantry to benefit area residents. Donations of nutritious, non-perishable food (no glass, please) will be accepted at the Dawes House, 225 Greenwood St., from Thursday, December 4 through Sunday, December 7 from 1pm to 4pm each day

The food drive is conducted in the spirit of the Dawes family.  Every year, the family put together baskets of food and goodies.  On Christmas Eve, all members of the family drove around Evanston, delivering the baskets to families in need.

EHC gratefully acknowledges Whole Foods Market for sponsoring the event.
