Havlicek Builders and Cabinets at Danada Collect Toys and Food for the Needy

November 27, 2009

havlicekbuildersTo lend a helping hand to area residents in need this holiday season, Havlicek Builders and Cabinets at Danada Studio West are collecting toys and food through Dec, 17 at both Geneva locations.

Donations of new, unopened and unwrapped toys for infants through teenagers as well as gift cards are welcome, which will be distributed to local disadvantaged children by the Fox Valley Toys for Tots. Also sought are nonperishable food items (new, unopened cans, jars, boxes and bags), which will be delivered to the food pantry at St. Peter Church in Geneva and used to feed the needy.

“During this season of plenty, it’s important to remember those who are less fortunate than us,” said George Havlicek, owner of Havlicek Builders. “And this year, with the down economy, more people are suffering than ever before. Even a small sacrifice can make a big difference in the lives of others.”

Donation bins for each cause will be clearly marked and placed inside the entrances at Havlicek Builders (suite J) and Cabinets at Danada Studio West (suite H), both located at 321 Stevens St. in Geneva (four blocks north of Rt. 38/State Street). Donated items can be dropped off at either business between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. Additionally, Cabinets at Danada will be offering fresh-baked cookies and coffee to donators and visitors between noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 12 and 13.

“Toys for Tots and St. Peter’s food pantry are both such worthy causes that are making a big impact in our community,” said Diane Bohstedt, kitchen designer for Cabinets at Danada. “It’s our goal to have an abundance of donated goods ready to pass on to them. But we can’t do it without your help.”
