Members of the Palos Township Republican Organization are shown with some of the food they collected for neighbors in need on Dec. 11.
The Palos Township GOP held the dropoff collection of food at the Quin Elementary School in Palos Hills. The following morning, the Palos Township food pantry received hundreds of pounds of food.
Committeeman Sean Morrison said: "I'm touched by the generosity and outpouring of support for this event. This is very important for the less fortunate members of our community, especially during the holidays. However, we'll also look to continue to assist the food bank throughout the year."
