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. The Loaves and Fishes have initiated a Thanksgiving dinner for residents in need. The donations from the residents and visitors to the Park District facilities will be used for purchasing pumpkin pies for the needy residents.

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.”

Eric Gardner, the director of Philanthropy at Loaves and Fishes, said, “Loaves and Fishes is so grateful to receive this wonderful gift from the Naperville Park District.” The drive will help the residents in need.
