M. J. Electric Holds Trick-or-Can Food Drive

Witches, monsters, and cans, oh my! M.J. Electric got in the Halloween spirit this October, by hosting their very own spooky Trick-or-Can Food Drive.

Starting on October 1 and extending all the way to Halloween, M.J. Electric encouraged their employees to donate non-perishable items — such as peanut butter, tuna, pasta, canned vegetables, and cereal — to help fight hunger in Chicago. The company donated a grand total of 1,300 pounds of food, which will provide 1,000 meals to people who are facing hunger in the communities they serve.

M.J. Electric received an assist from our friends at MiniMove, who volunteered to deliver the all of the donations to the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry.

Nearly 1.4 million people in Illinois are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Thank you to those at M.J. Electric for supporting our mission to fight hunger in Illinois and across the United States.

Interested in hosting a food drive of your own? Let’s get started!
