Food & School Supplies Drive

We are hosting a combination Food & School Supplies Drive!

July 15 – 26, 2024

Northern Rehab is collecting non-perishable food items and school supplies to benefit food pantries that serve the DeKalb, Sycamore, Genoa, and Rochelle communities. Donations will support the Barb Food Mart, Spartan Food Pantry, Genoa Area Food Hub, and Rochelle Christian Food Pantry. Non-perishable food items needed include canned meat (chicken, tuna), pasta, dry goods, canned foods (soups, sauces, fruits or vegetables), rice, beans, applesauce, paper goods, personal care items, cleaning products, or any non-perishable items that have a longer shelf life. Needed school supplies include pencils, pens, markers, highlighters, crayons, colored pencils, notepaper, notebooks, folders, glue, erasers, rulers, sticky notes.

We have also partnered with DeKalb County United soccer and collection bins will be at the DKCU Men’s home game on Saturday, July 27 at NIU. Kick off is at 4:30 pm.

When dropping off a donation, you may ENTER OUR RAFFLE to win a $25 gift card to a local restaurant or business! One winner from each location will be chosen the week of July 29.

Items may be dropped off at any of our Northern Rehab locations in DeKalb, Genoa, or Rochelle.  The collection will run July 15-26, 2024. For more information, please call us at 815.756.8524. Thank you in advance for your support and contribution!
