Kankakee, IL – The City of Kankakee is collecting non-perishable items now through December 6, 2019. November is National Gratitude Month; a month where many communities come together to give back. Mayor Wells-Armstrong kicked off the initiative to raise awareness for those less fortunate.
“The City of Kankakee is dedicated to supporting our local charities, non-profits and organizations who work hard to meet the needs that so many of us often take for granted. You can help us by giving back to our community as we continue to work together to do our part to make a difference,” said Mayor Wells-Armstrong.
Collection bins where items can be dropped off have been placed in the City of Kankakee’s Administration Building, Public Safety Building and the Kankakee Public Library. Some organizations stated they have a bigger need for toilet paper, body wash and laundry detergent.
Donations that are needed are as follows:
Shelf stable meals
Canned Tuna or salmon
Beef jerky sticks
Macaroni and cheese
