Wayne Township Will Be Closed Today In Honor of Memorial Day.    


Notes from General Assistance

From the June / July 2017 Senior Center Newsletter:

Thank you for your monthly donations of food and other products for our pantry and for your recent donations of Easter candy and baskets. A special THANK YOU to Elaine, Rosemarie, Joe and Sharon for helping us put the Easter baskets together!

NICOR Sharing Program
The LIHEAP season is over. However, if you need assistance paying your gas bill Nicor Sharing might be able to help. This program is available to those households whose income is too high for LIHEAP. If eligible, you can get a one-time payment toward your gas bill of up to $200. Call our office to get the number of the office closest to you.

Food Pantry
Our pantry is open on Wednesdays from 10:00am to 1:45pm for Wayne Township residents in need of food assistance. If you need food but cannot come in, you can ask to participate with a proxy. Call for more information.

Clothes Closet
We can no longer accept winter clothing donations as we are extremely limited in space. Please bring your gently used donations of clothes, shoes, etc., to our office on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9:00am and 4:00pm. Receipts are available upon request.

Information and Referral
Please contact our office if you ever have a question about any public benefit program. We will take a short assessment of your needs and refer you to the appropriate agency and/or program. You may also contact the DuPage County Community Services Office at 630-407-6500 for help with public benefits referrals.

SNAP Program
Our volunteer is available to help you apply for food stamps on Wednesdays between 10:00am and 1:30pm. Please bring proof of income and your photo ID. You will be seen on a walk-in basis.

Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Juanita Martinez
Director, General Assistance
