The Galva Lions Club is updating and adding names to its list of recipients for the Empty Stocking food project. 

If you, or someone you know, is in need of a food basket just prior to Christmas, please call John Goodale at (309) 932-3909 or Pastor Don Reul at (815) 499-2470 to have your name included. 

You can also contact any member of the Galva Lions Club. The club’s list needs updating of addresses and proper names. Please contact the club sooner rather than later.

Names need to be in the club’s hands prior to Dec. 1 to be included. Any name received after that date will not be guaranteed to be included this year. 

Baskets will be delivered starting at 8 a.m. on Dec. 16. Please have an adult member available to receive the food basket. Delivery is usually attempted twice. 

After the second attempt the basket will be taken to the Galva Food Pantry and the recipient will need to make arrangements with the Pantry to access the food.
