GRAND SUBARU DONATES $100,000 AND DELIVERY VAN TO ELMHURST FOOD PANTRY

BENSENVILLE, IL - As Part of their commitment to the local community, Grand Subaru has agreed to donate $100,000 and a new delivery van to the Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry located at 1083 S. York Road in Elmhurst. The Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry is one of the largest all-volunteer food pantries in the area with over 100 people and no salaried employees. Serving over 800 families in Elmhurst and surrounding towns, the food pantry relies on charitable donations of food and money to help with its outreach. Started in 1983 out of a closet of the Yorkfield Presbyterian Church, EYFP, has grown through the hard work of volunteers like Katherine Watts, the managing director.

In DuPage County alone nearly 100,000 people are at risk of hunger and food insecurity. EYFP, provides a store setting in which people can pick up what they need.

"We're a little different than other food pantries, we let people choose what they want rather than providing them with a box of food, " said Watts.

This year, EYFP moved into a brand new facility thanks to the generous donations of over 500 individuals and companies like Grand Subaru. On Wednesday, March 22nd, Grand Subaru of Bensenville will donate $100,000 and a new delivery van to the food pantry as part of the dealership's Love Promise to the community. The Love Promise is a corporate philosophy to make a positive impact on the community and making the community a better place to live for everyone.

Ryan Drouin , General Manager at Grand Subaru, sought out Elmhurst Yorkfield Food Pantry because of the positive work they do in the community.

"EYFP represents everything we as a business are looking to support, their unselfish volunteerism has created such a huge impact in the community for people struggling to make ends meet," said Drouin.

In addition, to the $100,000 donation, Grand Subaru is also donating a delivery van, which according to Watts couldn't have come at a better time.

"Our delivery van was truly on it's last leg, you could hear it coming a mile away and because it serves such a necessary purpose for us, we had to keep it going. When Ryan told us of his commitment, it was a real miracle, because we did not have the funds available to get a new van," said Watts.

The donation will be given as part of an event on Wednesday March 22nd at 6pm at Grand Subaru 125 W. Grand Avenue in Bensenville. In addition to members of Grand Subaru and volunteers from EYFP, members of the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce, regional management from Subaru of America, and representatives from Northern Illinois Food Bank will also be present.
