Mariano’s Fresh Market and the Roundy’s Foundation presented a $5,000 check to CEDA Northwest Self-Help Center on Friday, December 9 at about 1:00 p.m. at Mariano’s Fresh Market in Arlington Heights.
The money will support the organization’s Food Connection Program — a food pantry designed to meet the emergency needs of the community.
CEDA, which is the acronym for the Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County, applied to the Roundy’s Foundation; and the board approved the $5,000 contribution.
