A Sad Loss
A couple of weeks ago, our extremely needed little purple pickup truck was stolen from in front of Leslie's Place. We filed a police report. A week or so later, the truck was found a couple of miles from Leslie's Place. It had been stripped and destroyed. We are left without the means to pick up our Greater Chicago Food Depository orders, our Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation orders or any other material necessary to keep our facility functioning. If anyone would be willing to donate a pickup truck or is aware of anyone selling a pickup truck for a very reasonable price, please call (773) 342-8384 and let us know. We would be so very grateful for your help in this matter.

Our board members will be distributing daily planners for a small donation of $10.00. In our busy schedules, it is always helpful to have an organizational tool. This planner is small enough to easily fit in a purse or pocket. It will surely lighten your load by getting you where you need to be on time.
We wish to extend our sincere and heartfelt gratitude to John Kayser and his friends. These four compassionate men participated in a triathlon held in Galena, IL last May. They sponsored Leslie's Place and were able to raise $2000 from their efforts. this money was a blessing to our organization. We are overwhelmed by the giving spirits of John and his fellow triathletes.
Friends, board members, employees, and all of the residents of Leslie's Place participated in the annual Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk held last June. Over twenty individuals walked for Leslie's Place and enjoyed a beautiful morning by Lake Michigan in the sunshine. We are truly grateful for the dedication of all those who attended.
