In an effort to give back to the community, Munch’s Supply Co. recently hosted its first annual food drive. Employees, customers, and vendors contributed food, personal hygiene items, and money during the four-week long drive. Each of Munch’s seven branches collected donations for the food pantry in their local community.
“This event was a great success.” said Bob Munch Jr., president, Munch’s Supply Co. “Too many families in our own backyards struggle to put food on the table, and the
generosity of our employees, customers, and vendors has been phenomenal.”
Munch’s Supply collected a total of 1,340 items totaling over 1,000 meals for members of the community and raised more than $4,500 to benefit the Wheeling Township Food Pantry, Aurora Interfaith Food Pantry, New Lenox Township Food Pantry, We Care of Grundy County Food Pantry, Worth Township Food Pantry, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Two of Munch’s vendors, Aprilaire and Metropolitan Industries, contributed to the cause.
