What a pleasant surprise to see the efforts of many community members and businesses come together to have a Monster’s Ball for M.O.R.E.! It sounds like it will be a crazy fun time on October 26 at Glo-Bowl Fun Center where all you grown-ups can let loose for a good cause. Get your costume picked out and remember to get your tickets ahead of time.

Sign-ups for families to receive holiday food boxes, Toys for Tots and Angel Tree clothing gifts will take place Saturday morning, October 26, from 9-noon at the M.O.R.E. Center. If you know someone that can benefit from this, please pass this information on.

The Marengo Women’s Club is again taking on the Week-end Nutrition Program. The purpose of the program is to provide nutritional snacks for young, school-aged children over the weekend in households where food is scarce. Snacks are placed in children’s lockers on Thursdays in time for the weekend. This program is run entirely by the Women’s Club out of the M.O.R.E. Center.

MORE benefited greatly from the local gardens and produce farms over the past couple of months. We were able to give out fruit and produce ranging from apples to zucchini. On Labor Day, about 40 volunteers picked corn for all of the McHenry County food pantries from the Community Garden thanks to John Bartman and Nancy Vazzano. MORE received about 900 ears of corn that day. Light of Christ Lutheran Church in Lake in the Hills contributed about 1800 ears of corn to MORE throughout August. This was made available through a Boy Scout Eagle project that grew corn for many food pantries. Again, we wish to thank everyone.
