Capron, IL – August 4, 2017 – The Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry in Capron, Ill. is the recipient of a $2,000 Community Investment Grant from local energy transportation company, Enbridge. The grant will support the pantry’s efforts to enhance safety at its facility.

Reverend Danice Loveridge, the new executive director for Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry indicated that this grant money will be used toward improvements at the facility to improve safety for their clients. Many of the over 4,500 unduplicated clients they serve per year have limited mobility requiring wheelchairs, walkers, or canes.  The Pantry is in need of improvements including parking spaces, ADA compliant restroom, and a wheelchair ramp.

In 2016, Enbridge donated more than $137,000 to organizations in Illinois through the Community Investment Grant Program. Enbridge partners with community organizations that positively impact the quality of life in our communities by championing solutions for safety, environmental and social issues.
