Dear Editor:

I am writing on behalf of the Taylorville Kiwanis Club. For many years our club has been providing support for children from our community as well as the community itself. As we continue to address the complications that are being presented by the COVID-19 virus the Taylorville Food Pantry has seen a substantial increase in those in need.


The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is sponsoring a Drive-Thru Food Drive to assist in providing for those in need. To help make this effort a great success we are asking for help from businesses and the citizens of Taylorville. We hope to assist with the needs of families in our community at this difficult time. Whether it be a donation of collected food items or a monetary donation, any amount will be appreciated.


The Drive-Thru Food Drive takes place every Saturday during the month of May from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Your donation can be dropped off during these hours at the Miller Media Group Studios parking lot located at 918 East Park Street in Taylorville. If this time is not convenient, a Kiwanis member can pick up your donation.


Any support will be greatly appreciated by the Kiwanis Club and those who depend on the Taylorville Food Pantry. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a pick up please call (217) 827-5342. Your support is greatly appreciated.


Thank you,

Martin Vota, secretary
Taylorville Kiwanis Club
