Downers Grove Area FISH Pantry is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization which has served local communities since 1969. Their services include a food pantry, clothes closet, financial assistance, and transportation. Downers Grove Area FISH Pantry is dedicated to helping improve the quality of life for the people in our community. They strive to provide a safe, healthy, and welcoming environment for clients and volunteers alike. Although DuPage County is the second-richest county in Illinois, more than 1 in every 10 adults is projected to be food insecure (source: Impact DuPage). The FISH Pantry helps hundreds of families and individuals each year from Darien, Downers Grove, Lisle, Westmont, and Woodridge.

Terri Doney, vice president and managing broker of the firm’s Downers Grove, Hinsdale and La Grange offices, said, “Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago celebrates Community Kindness every June as a way to give back. We select activities that will really make a difference in our community and this year chose to collect donations for FISH. The work they do in our communities is vitally important. Thank you to everyone who has donated food items, volunteered time or contributed financially to make a difference for our neighbors in need.”1655999815
