The Caring Committee at First Lutheran Church of Plano recently put together 60 birthday boxes and bags to be donated to the Kendall County Community Food Pantry.

The birthday boxes included cake mix, frosting, decorations, candles, plates and napkins – everything needed for the beginnings of a great birthday celebration.

Members learned that, oftentimes, families struggling to make ends meet do not have the means to purchase these items for their family members, and the committee wanted to help.

Donations were accepted from Sunday School students and congregation members, and within two weeks enough had been donated to assemble 60 kits.

First Lutheran Church of Plano is also a drop-off location for Kendall County Community Food Pantry donations. Feel free to drop nonperishable donations at the church, located at 200 N. Center St. in Plano. For more information, call the First Lutheran Church of Plano at 630-552-8263.
