Get ready for the Darien Lions Club and The Darien Park District’s annual Food Basket Program this Holiday season. The Food Basket Program provides ham, turkey, dairy products and produce to needy families in Darien and nearby communities. Last year, with the support of several local businesses and residents, the Darien Lions Club was able to provide baskets to over 200 families. Along with the baskets, the Darien Park District provides gifts for the families with children. Consider participating by making a cash donation which will be used to purchase food supplies for this project. The cost to sponsor a family is $75.00. Checks can be made payable to the Darien Lions Foundation, 1702 Plainfield Road, Darien IL 60561.
