The St. Clare Center Food Pantry will benefit from a matching fund challenge currently being held at Victory Lane Ford throughout the month of November. The dealership will match every dollar donated to the food pantry through Nov. 30 up to a total contribution of $5,000. 

“We are most appreciative to Victory Lane Ford for this generous challenge grant which enables donors to double the value of their contribution,” said Paula Endress, director of philanthropy at HSHS St. Francis Hospital. “The number of people we serve continues to grow at the food pantry, and particularly during the holiday season. Thank you to all who are able to help those less fortunate in our community.” 

To participate in the challenge simply visit Victory Lane Ford and make a donation, or mail the donation to HSHS St. Francis Foundation, 1215 Franciscan Drive, Litchfield, IL  62056. Checks may be made payable to HSHS St. Francis Foundation, with a note stating it is for the Victory Lane challenge. 

“Now more than ever it is important to make sure that the pantry has enough food to meet their needs for the upcoming holiday season and winter months,” explained Gene Hebenstreit, owner of Victory Lane Ford.  “I am pleased that throughout this COVID pandemic the pantry was always open. Let’s make sure that continues.” 

The St. Clare Center Food Pantry is located at 603 N. Madison Street in Litchfield and is a ministry of St. Francis Hospital. The pantry serves residents of Montgomery and Macoupin counties. For further information about the pantry or challenge call 324-2800.
