The Loaves and Fishes Community Service will get the benefit from the 13th annual Pennies for Pies drive of the Naperville Park District. The drive will run from November 1 to November 22.

Brad Wilson, the director of recreation and facilities, said, “Pennies for Pies began years ago in our preschool to learn about what it means when you have many small donations that come together to do something larger.”
