HELP STRENGTHEN OUR COMMUNITY
It’s that time of year again! We are holding our 5th ANNUAL TEAM HPF HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE at High Performance Fitness! We have always received an outpouring of generosity from our friends, family members, gym members and their families and friends, and everyone in the community to collect a HUGE amount of food items!! We’re looking forward to seeing how massive we can make this year’s food drive collection with YOUR help!
The Rich Township Food Pantry, located in Richton Park, Illinois, is a local non-profit that serves the surrounding 10 communities with food assistance programs, including fresh produce, to low-income families that qualify for services. There’s no better feeling than to give with your heart around the holidays, and the cold weather. Everyone deserves to have a wonderful holiday filled with joy, loved ones, and a good meal to go with it, but so many do not have that chance. We’re here to make sure that the families in the south suburbs have that opportunity!
LOOKING FOR A HEALTHY ALTERNATIVE TO DONATING??
Of course we know that some food is better than no food, but we also realize that sometimes, the typical food drive donations aren’t always the most nutritious and health-conscious items. At High Performance Fitness, we’ve recently created a partnership between ViSalus, a health transformation and healthy fast food company, and the Rich Township Food Pantry to have extraordinarily high quality, nutritious meals and snacks donated to the community! In fact, when you use this link to donate online teamhpf.visalusgiving.com ViSalus will match your donation to double it!! Instead of buying canned goods, sugary cereals, and unhealthy snacks, you can choose between the following items below to be shipped right to the pantry’s door!
- The “shake mix that tastes like cake mix” Vi Shape Sweet Cream meal replacement shake mix
- The “shake in a flake” Vi Crunch protein super cereal, a cereal that is a full meal
- The delicious and nutritious Nutra Cookies, a protein cookie snack that kids love
Once you visit teamhpf.visalusgiving.com you can click the “I WANT TO DONATE” button, then choose your country, select the item you’d like to donate, then in STEP 2, you select “Your Nearest Charity” from the drop down menu, then “United States“, and “Illinois“, and you will select “Rich Township Food Pantry, Richton Park” in the list to send your donation to!
You can stop by and drop off your non-perishable donations to our facility at 21750 Main Street, Unit #19, Matteson, IL 60443 now through Wednesday, December 28th during normal business hours (located on the bottom of this site)! The Rich Township Food Pantry has listed preferred items for the families they serve:
-ramen noodles (chicken flavor)
-other canned meats (chicken, spam, etc)
-cereal (not the sugary kind)
-dry pudding mix
-condiments (ketchup, mustard, relish, BBQ sauce, etc)
-any other non-perishable boxed, bagged, or canned foods
PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS (travel size is best)
