The Chicago Donauschwaben celebrated their annual Christmas Season by donating to the Des Plaines Self Help Closet and Food Pantry.

Each year, members of the Verein’s Kindergruppe and Jugendgruppe collect food items and gift cards for the benefit of the local residents.

The Verein also gave a check for $3,000 to Debra Walusiak, Executive Director of the Self Help Closet and Food Pantry to buy items they still need to fill the great demand.

The Society of the Danube Swabians is grateful for what we have and we want to give back to our local Des Plaines Community and the people that it serves.

We can continue to help the Self Help Closet and Food Pantry by donating throughout the year. The Red Barrels are always in our entrance foyer and we thank you for your generosity throughout the year.
