The Taylorville Sertoma Club is pledging up to $5000 to help complete the building fund campaign for the Taylorville Food Pantry.
Larry Peterson, president of the local club, says that the Food Pantry has always been a preferred charity for their club.
Peterson added that for years, they have donated selections of frozen meats at different times during the year. When the building campaign was announced, the club knew they wanted to see the new building constructed as soon as possible.
The Reverend Rodney Blomquist, chair of the Taylorville Ministerial Association Food Pantry building fund raising committee, said if the Sertoma $5000 matching challenge is met, then construction could begin this year. The Sertoma Club will match donations up to $5000 received from April 29 through June 30, 2016.
Donations, in any amount, are welcome from service clubs, community organizations, businesses, or individuals. Contributions should be mailed to Building Fund, Taylorville Food Pantry, 223 W. Franklin, Taylorville, IL. 62568.
